It has an unusual lift out lid which covers the section where the hidden drawers are, this is reached by pushing down the inkwell which makes the wooden piece spring off to reveal the two drawers. The inkwell is Victorian cut glass and is a clever non spill design with central hole. Bramah style lock with the rare addition of two working keys. Gilded black leather skiver, brass fittings and initialled cartouche to lid.Condition is very good for age, it looks to have had some restoration done on it years ago in that the baize to base and leather look like replacements but super quality and a really beautiful piece. There are a couple of splits to the wood on the base but only visible from the interior and a 3cm piece of the black wood moulding missing to one corner/side on the back. Some light signs of age and wear and tear at the edges.
