The table retains all the original ornate brass swan-neck handles and brass castors. The lockable hinged top folds over to reveal a green baize lined writing surface. The frieze has two short drawers and one long drawer to the front, and two short drawers and one long dummy drawer to the reverse side.

The writing table is ideal for storing a collection of gold boxes, which can be covered up and hidden.

A very similar writing table, supplied by William Vile to Queen Charlotte in 1763, is in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle.
Private collection, Australia.
