Antique English solid oak writing slope/desk. There is a presentation plaque to the center that reads… From The Officers R. There is the original leather with small apertures that hold some ivory implements. Two decorative carrying handles, one on either side. Two original glass ink bottles, three drawers, oak partitions with underneath storage. It measures 12″ tall x 16″ across x 10 deep, 13lbs. I removed the top latch, so the box would close snugly. The latch and screws are included. When they are attached, the box doesn’t close all the way down probably due to shrinkage to the oak over the years, slight damage to the lock ares (pic 9) A lovely portable desk in great condition.
