A fine and completely fitted English rosewood lap desk, or travelling desk. The top plaque and keyhole escutcheon are mother-of pearl. The interior has two silver covered glass sander jars (minor dents), two glass inkwells, three compartments with wood covers, a leather blotter, and a velvet pad. All these are in a lift out tray. There is a drop down leather writing surface. Everything appears to be original.

The desk is in overall excellent condition, with dimensions of 11" long by 7 3/4" deep by 4 3/4" high. The dullness on the top in the first picture is due to a photo issue.
