Description
A mid-19th-century mahogany brass bound traveling desk or box desk by William Wilson. The box is very heavy mahogany in a campaign style with gilt brass strapping, corners, and military plate carrying handles at the sides. The interior has a black leather-covered writing board with storage compartments underneath. The shorter board hinges open to reveal a lift-out tray and underneath that a spring open secret compartment that has three small mahogany drawers with knob handles. The underside of the lid has a storage compartment and ribbon mail rack. Under the pen tray and inkwells is a maker's label for William Wilson 21 George St Edinburgh. The top of the lid has a brass plate that is inscribed 'Rev . . . ' and the box has a working lock and key. This well-made high-quality box is in very good condition with some old marks from use and the leather writing surface is a replacement. (Circa 1850)
