In particularly fine original condition it is constructed of beautifully-figured satinwood, and comprises 2 separate sections. The upper one, with its large carrying handle and five small drawers, may be carried from room to room. The lower section has a fitted drawer with a sliding leather-lined writing surface and a useful shaped shelf below. It is raised on elegant tapering legs terminating in original brass castors. 21ins (53cms) wide. *Unusually, there is a "secret" drawer within this piece.
