It Is made of mahogany with burr walnut veneer and solid walnut dividers. As the photos show, it has two doors which act as closures for the lid on top and the drawer below. It has brass hinges and latches which all work, the lock is missing its key. For its age it is in wonderful condition, the burr veneer is intact but the box does have a few marks and shall chips consistent with age and use. The right door has some separation at the top which gives a slight off set when closed, and the bottom corner of the left door has some damage. The draw is secured when closed by a brass pin, which looks to be original, once the doors have been open the pin can be lifted which then allows the draw to be opened. Measures 15 inches wide, 8.5 inches depth, and 11.5 inches high. This is one of the nicest burl veneers scribes desk I have seen, it is in great condition with the minimal of damage and virtually no cracking from drying. The drawer on the bottom is in excellent condition and would have been used to store pens, etc. The slots in the center portion were used to store bills and correspondence. The left door would have stringing of a thin cord on the brass pegs to hold small cards, addresses, and such.
