Campaign Lap Desk

   In the 19th century, British deck officers kept the daily log and traveling civilians wrote letters on lap desks like these. The originals were commissioned from renowned designers like Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton. This replicas, as practical as it is stylish, would delight even the most discerning gentleman. This hand-made solid plantation mahogany desk has bronze hardware, two small secret compartments, space for inkwells, styluses and lots of paper. It comes with a bottle of black/India ink, 2 wood stylus and nibs. l 16" x w 10" x h 4".

    Not guaranteed to be 100% authentic for any specific period, but a good item for general 19th Century (1800s) impressions.
