Military Campaign Davenport

hover over image to zoom

A fine and exceptional military campaign Davenport desk, the forward sliding sloping upper section retaining the original blind-tooled leather writing surface and gilt brass Greek key pattern gallery. To the right hand side is a small drawer that extends and folds for pens, inks, etc., and within the writing surface are four small drawers, one false in order to accommodate the pen tray. To the right hand side are four graduated drawers with boxwood stringing and flush fitting brass handles, replicated on all sides with matching dummy drawers, a pull-out slide left and right, the whole standing on a bracket base with heavy cast brass castors.

 

Delightfully small, of wonderful, fine quality in both the timber and the making; original condition throughout having endured little more than cleaning and reviving of the surfaces.

 

English circa 1815.
