This very pretty desk was made and decorated in about 1890. All original, including the leather surface, which draws forward to give a greater writing surface, this piece can only be appreciated in the round, as it is covered in delicate floral and ribbon motifs, swags cherubs and classical figures, all executed in the late 18th century manner. It has two long drawers beneath the writing surface, which is surrounded on three sides by and upper-structure presenting the usual Carlton House arrangement of small drawers, doors and hinged flaps to the sides.
