An English burl wood lap desk box from the mid-19th century with custom mahogany stand and mother-of-pearl accents. This exquisite English box on stand features a rectangular top sitting above a custom-made mahogany stand, accented with petite curving supports in each corner. Adorned with two mother-of-pearl medallions, the box opens thanks to a petite key to reveal the slanted writing area and a partitioned section dedicated to inkwells and other writing accessories. Additional storage for documents, lined with a deep purple fabric, is located under the two hinged wooden boards. With its clean lines and exquisite burl wood, this English slanted lap desk box on stand, circa 1850 will be an excellent decorative accent, perhaps used as a drink table.
