This highly unusual piece transforms from a knee-hole desk into a complete writing desk/dressing table, everthing the Officer would need whilst on campaign. Firstly the centre of the top folds back, then the sides of the top fold to the left and right (these can be further opened to contain documents) this then allows three sprung loaded compartments (one each side and one at the back) to be released and to rise, finally a leather writing surface slides forward and down. The whole desk is constructed from dense Cuban mahogany and retains its original locks, lifting handles and castors. The handles are replacements. 1160 mm wide, 625 mm deep and 915 mm high. Circa 1840
