The drawers have mahogany linings and turned knob handles and above the drawers is a small pen and ink drawer that pulls open and swings forward for use. The desk has a top that slides forward over your knees when used to write at. The leather covered writing surface can be raised to give a higher platform with a storage are inside. The desk has a plinth base which is lifted on casters so the desk can be moved around and has decorative flat pillars with carved tops to the front.
