A un unusual late 19th century roll top writing desk of compact size. Partially of teak this desk was likely of colonial manufacture and made in two parts for ease of transportation etc. (easily separated if desired by means of four small screws). As you will see in the photos its interior slides forward to access the writing surface allow it to be canted. Interior is fitted with pigeon holes flanked by four drawers - the slender lower drawers however are false. The base also has a pair of drawers. Original locks, castors etc but no keys. Brass handles to top and base although 100 or so years old are very likely replacements. NB - we have noted its country of manufacture as 'england' in the listing as there is no provision for 'colonial, which it in all probability was.

Colonial or campaign roll top writing desk
A remarkably original campaign washstand from the early part of the 19th century in mahogany. Unlike many other pieces of campaign furniture this has never been restored or altered so one can see exactly what it always has been - if you get our drift. Even the fully functional and adjustable rising mirror has its original plate.
