Circa 1820, George IV mahogany writing table/work box. The rectangular top has a concave moulded edge, over a pull out writing slide with a felt insert and cast brass axe head drop. When fully extended it is quite sturdy and could be used for a laptop or as a writing surface. Beneath this is a full length drawer with a simple escutcheon and original lock with key. Inside has had multiple divisions which have been removed, perhaps indicating that this was originally a sewing table. The whole piece stands on flat trestle ends, finishing on raised splayed feet united by turn cross stretchers. The top of the feet are ribbed and finish on a simple block with a carved roundel on top, terminating on brass tipped castors with white porcelain wheels.
