Shipper: Harp Pack - USPS/Fed Ex
An exquisite English Victorian ebony, burl, rosewood and inlaid brass lap or travel desk from the 1880's was the laptop of its day.
The original finish is extremely well preserved. Waxed and buffed, all that is needed to maintain its warm patina is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth. A lock and key secure the folding lid, underneath are pen and envelope compartments.
Two cut crystal inkwells have minor chips on the lid. The presentation plaque on the drop front is monogrammed. Inside is a slanted velvet writing surface, there is also storage for papers underneath.
Size is 13" wide, 11" deep and 6" tall.
USPS Shipping is $30 in the US.
