There are 3 drawers under the writing surface when you push down the inside support bracket the back wall pops off exposing the three hidden drawers. The brass tabs to hold the inner top writing surface in place and is all there. The wood lid does not appear to be warped in any way as you see with many of these pieces. The lid fits nicely down on the base of the case, when the lock tabs do not block it.
Some minor surface scratching to the wood case, but does not take away from it's beauty. A crack along the length of the bottom of the writing desk. The desk shows wear and tear from use and age. Some crazing of the wood veneer on the top.
Old Green felt is in ok shape at the bottom of the case. The brass escutcheon around the key lock hole is in place. The brass lock is there but not the key to operate the lock. Does open and close without the key though. Not sure of the maker or country of origination of the box.
The green and gold leather writing surface is in place, The leather is creased in middle where folds. The section for the inkwells and pens are in place. One inkwell comes with this case. The Antique Lap Writing/Travel Desk is 6-7/8" tall, by 19.75" across, by 10 wide. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
