Very early calf skin mobile writing bureau, this is part of my attic stock and has been with me since a child and before that my family, I do not have a lot of details on it only that I was given to the family by a naval officers elderly wife, I grew up in the docks in London so my family had many sea legged friends, this item is made of leather and has a lovely used patina, it has a large ship engraved into the leather, the measurements are 12 inches across and 11 inches high, it has compartments inside and a blotting pad, the interior of the item consists of silk taffeta and lined polished leather, it still stands up when open although the metal frame needs some loving care in relation to the small hinges fitting back inside the taffeta although this does not effect the working or look of the item, the leather can be cleaned to remove the patina which has developed, a beautiful rare item
