A Mid-Victorian walnut davenport writing desk with barley twist front supports and an unusual enclosed bank of drawers. The hinged writing flap on top is inlaid with gold embossed red leather and is backed by carved pierced foliate scroll. When lifted the writing flap reveals a satin wood lined interior with two short drawers and what appears to be one long drawer to the rear. The long drawer is false and conceals a pull out pen tray which when fully extended can operate on a hinge allowing the tray to rest parallel to the right hand side of the davenport. There are two pull out slides located beneath the writing desk interior.
The main body of the davenport contains a bank of drawers to the right hand side which are concealed behind a hinged panel. This is done to maintain the symmetry of the piece. The writing desk top is supported at the rear end of the cabinet with attractive barley twist column supports to the front. The column supports join the base of the davenport and terminate in turned pad feet.
