Macassar Ebony Antique 1890 Inlaid Lap or Travel Desk, British India

Print page

HomeMisc. Small


Item# 28001

 This marvelous "lap" or travel desk was the laptop of its age, the late 1800's. Hand crafted in British India of genuine solid macassar ebony, this antique is richly inlaid in the Indian manner.

The renewed finish is in excellent condition, preserving just enough mars and shrinkage separations for a little character. Joints have hand cut dovetails and sides have been carved to a wavy design. There is a cylindrical paper roller plus two covered inkwells and a pen rest. Under the felt writing surface is stationery storage.

Size when closed is 17" wide, 9 1/2" deep and 5 1/2" tall.

Please view 20 photos at full screen size for best detail. Related items in photos are sold separately.

Shipping is $35 in the US.
