A splendid Victorian portable travel or "lap" desk was beautifully crafted in England around 1890, and was the "laptop" of the age. Mahogany with inlaid brass corners and mounts, this triple desk has two lift up compartments.

Inside are felt lined compartments for pens, documents and stationery. Side handles are lion heads on this nostalgic British antique.
Closed measurements are 20 1/2" long, 12" deep and 8" tall, when opened, size is 20 1/2" x 33."
