Antique Lap Desk: American, Federal Period
This is an extremely rare American Made grain painted slope from the 1780-1800 Period. Almost all the slopes in this period were imported from England and just a few from France. It is all original including lock(no key) Handles, hinges, and finishes. The only contemporary component is the covering on the wiriting board which was carefully chosen to duplicate the original fabric which was disintegrated when we purchased this box some two years ago(a swath of the original material is include for comparison) The condition of the box is very interesting. It shows years of use and some of it hard use. Wood is worn to groves and polished sufaces by the passing of fingers. Ink stains substantial portions of the interior wood, grease stains are evident, penciled numbers are writen on the back of the writing boards. And, five receipts and notes dating ... morefrom 1866 to 1871 have been shellacked to the back of one of the writing boards. The notes refer to purchase of horse hardware and trips with wagons to various destinations indicating that this box at one time was owned by a teamster. Surely this was the property or a fairly well to do individual initially as were most of these artifacts when new. It appears that it transitioned over time to be a working box for a person who drove horses for a living. I am sure that if only it could talk it indeed would tell some interesting stories both about our post colonial period not to mention our Civil War period. All the brass are of the proper hand made varieties for the period and the basic material of the box is white pine. Suggesting a North Atlantic origin. One of a kind for the seriouse collector of slopes. Classic 19"X10"X7" measurements.

There is a piece of veneer missing(about 1" long x 1/4" wide) Otherwise there are a few stress cracks in the veneer on the top. Generally the outside of the box is in good condition. On the inside of the box. There was probably velvet covering the wooden desk sections.

Antique Walnut Gold Embossed Leather Top Dovetailed Lap Desk
This is an Antique Gold Embossed Leather Top Lap Desk. The wood has a beautiful patina. It appears to me that the top frame of the desk is walnut and the secondary woods of the side and back panels is pine. The back corners have beautiful hand cut dovetails as seen in a pair of closeup photos. That attest to the age and hand made nature of this piece. The desk was purchased in England. And we are pretty confident it was made there as well. We do not know the age specifically but we are pretty confident it is a 19th Century or older piece. The total size of the desktop frame is 18 3/4" x 13 3/4" The leather clad writing surface is 15" x 10" The height at the back corner is 3" Transitioning very slightly higher at the edges transition to the upper surface. The three sided framed out support measures 17 1/2" x 12 ... more1/4" The desk weighs 3 1/2 pounds and it is a substantial, solid piece. You can see the construction in the photo of the underside and the two photos of the dovetails. The three panels are attached with screws. There are some remnants of some sort of paper covering on the bottom as seen. I do not know what this was from. With the warm glow of the walnut. The beautiful leather, and the great hand cut dovetails, this fine desk would be a wonderful addition to your home for decor and/or actual use! Condition Overall. The desk is in excellent overall condition. The walnut top has a beautiful patina with dings and wear consistent with its age and use. The leather top has a couple very minor scratches that the photo flash highlighted making them more apparent than they actually are. The top is firmly and uniformly glued to the wood. In some of the photos, you can see some slightly wavy appearance that is an artifact of the original creation of the piece, but we will guarantee your satisfaction that the writing surface is as you would expect it to be. There is perhaps a little very, very minor wear on the gold. This is a wonderful desk in great antique condition and we will 100%

Another unique item from Indelible Curiosities Antique Early 19th C Brass Mahogany Lap Desk w/Hoffer Docs Fnd In Hidden Drawers Description: This lap desk contains no ordinary so-called"hidden" drawers! We purchased this at an auction only to discover when we brought it home that this mahogany with brass inlay lap desk has a hidden locking mechanism which when released springs a thin board off the inside of the desk revealing two small drawers. Like something out of a treasure hunter's dream. The hunt did not end there for when we opened the drawers we found- no, not gold coins(darn it) but several folded documents all from the early 1800s! There are four papers in total. One of which is the original instructions for opening the secret compartment, the other three are all related to one person, Selina Hoffer a.k.a. Selina James ... moreand later as Selina Hall(the latter two are her married names) Two are her original marriage certificates dated 1825 and 1834 and the third is a less formal all handwritten original document stating who, where, and when(August 26, 1794) Selina was baptized. We have scanned these separately into one pdf file and will include the original documents as well as print-outs for the buyer(happy to provide the pdf files as well) Please note the last image is of all four scanned images of the papers but combined using Adobe Photoshop into one image- this is not representative of our scanned pdf files as we did those scanning each paper separately. We will include the objects we found in the two inkwells: orange pellets which are possibly ink pellets intended to be dissolved in water and a broken into two pieces red hard somewhat flat rectangular object with what appears to be some black ink on it- possibly also dissolves or is meant for mixing ink. Condition: No key. The desk still has its original ink wells; however. The top of one of the inkwells is missing and the other fits but does not fit securely. Interior is a gorgeous purple velvet with a decorative pressed border. The velvet

Here pictured is an antique mahogany lap desk. Circa 1800. Probably English. Measures approx. 20" across x 10" wide x 6" high(closed) No key. Several compartments. Ink bottle intact but top of neck is jagged(see photo#6) Photo#4 shows a secret drawer on one side only accessed by removing the metal dowel pictured on the felt. If the desk were closed and locked the drawer would be inaccessible.

I believe the metal parts are brass and the knob on the middle compartment is bone of some sort. There are ink stains on one of the lower compartments(see photo#8) The wood bottom of the'secret' drawer is split. And the felt. Which seems original, is split(approx. one(1) inch) along the ... morecentral seam. There is also a'divot' approx. one(1) inch on the upper felt(zoom on photo#2 right margin) Photo#10 shows the bottom of the piece with the card of an English antiques dealer in Edgefield, SC of long-standing repute and the original price paid($325) some decades ago. All in all this is an exquisite, ingeniously-designed, well-crafted item.in first-class condition for its age. Will ship insured. Thank you.

Antique Wood Roll Top Lap Desk, Travel Writing Slope Box w Drawer, Nice Patina
Beautiful Antique Roll Top Lap Desk. Writing Slope Up for your consideration is this truly beautiful antique lap desk. Made of wood. I am uncertain of the actual type of wood but has nice graining. This is just great in every way, it is intact and very secure when completely shut and when you pull out the drawer at the front, it will open the roll top portion in the back to expose a three section area inside. Once the roll top is open, you can unfold the desk portion which flips open from back to front and leans securely on the open drawer for stability, the desk has a purple or a worn blue felt top with brass hinges. Again, the wood is very nice inside and out, the drawer opens nicely as does the roll top portion. There is a large transfer decoration on the wood desk top, there is also the very slight remains of one on the top of the roll ... moretop framed area. There are only two areas with minor problems, first is the lower right corner which is missing a small corner wood piece, and the upper left corner of the framing of the roll top where there is also a small piece of wood missing; otherwise, working very well and looking very good. There is a brass lock in place for the drawer but no key and the hinges are brass as well and seem to be original. It measures 12 1/8" wide, 9 1/4" deep, 5 1/2" tall. It is very clean, no major breaks, cracks, or discoloration. Nice patina, nice scroll design in wood at the top roll top framing, transfer decoration is wearing and almost gone on the top portion, and of course, the two missing pieces mentioned earlier.

Handmade Inlay Antique Lap Desk by John P. Seidel in 1852, Philadelphia, PA
This is a one-of-a-kind handmade Antique Lap Desk. One of my favorite things that I have ever owned. I hope that someone finds it that appreciates the work that went into making something like this in the 1800's or better yet if the maker's descendants could find it. It measures 15.5" in length. 6" tall and 10" deep. It has thousands of tiny pieces of wood inlayed to create a beautiful scene which I believe may be from Germany. When you open the top it lays all the way back reveling the leather writing area. It has storage compartments in the top and bottom halves. It comes with two ink bottles. Under the section where you keep the pen is a secret compartment. Underneath the pen compartment is where the maker has recorded his name and date.

Antique Walnut Lap Writing Desk Brass Inlay Drawer 1800s Old Inkwell Period
Just found at an estate sale here in Boston a really really nice and completely original American Federal 1820s writing desk with side drawer. Nice Period inkwells. Amazing condition for being almost 200 years old. Nice period piece and very hard to find. All of the hinges are strong including the writing compartments. Nice ivory inlay on the skeleton key face and a wonderful lock mechanism. I've been told this is military because of all of the brass reinforcements. I think it still could be a desk for very wealthy individuals. the very long drawer pulls out smoothly and on very solid condition. Great dove tailing and nice chamfered areas on the drawers backside. Both ends have a drawer handle but only one opens it up. The writing surface blotter board looks original. A little veneer loss on left inside edge. The top of the desk has areas ... morewhere the wood curves down then up. Not that noticeable. Dimensions are 21 1/2 long x 11 deep x 7 high. Opened up it is 22 inches deep. Please write me at anytime with questions or for more pictures. As usual.No Reserve. Have a great week. g.RcmdId ViewItemDescV4,RlogId p4%60bo7%60jtb9%3Fuk%601d72f%2Bjw%60hquvg%3Eg-146b3c3df19-0x114-

Antique Walnut Lap Campaign Desk Brass Inlay Late-1800s? Secret Compartment
Antique Walnut Lap Campaign Desk with Brass Inlay Mid to Late 1800s? Secret Compartment Here is a great Antique Lap Writing Desk for your buying consideration. The last owner appears to have been an Elizabeth M Updike. Recently acquired it at an estate sale. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself. The lap desk is probably English made. But that is just a guess, you be the judge. F or your consideration is this walnut antique lap desk in very nice condition. The walnut case has a great luster to it. What makes this piece really unique is the secret slide drawer compartment. It can be opened by opening the case and then taking the brass rod out of the left side of the box that"locks" it in place. The previous owner was an Elizabeth M Updike from Princeton NY. The famous writer. John Updike, had a daughter named Elizabeth, ... morebut correspondence is too old to have been hers. Possibly and earlier family member as John was born in 1932. There are some wedding invitations from the early 1900s in this drawer, a letter that has Princeton 66 on it. Not sure if year, for 1966 or means something else. There is a letter to a Mr. E. M. Updike in the drawer as well from a Turnbull that accompanied a Liberty Bond Medal for WWI efforts in gather funds for the war effort(Princeton NJ Victory Liberty Loan Committee) It probably meant Mrs. but you know the government, they can't even get the sex of a party right in correspondence, eh? Another piece of paper with genealogical information on it talking about Updike's grandfather Samuel Montgomery(1816-1878) married to a Matilda Stockton. Also a mention of a Samuel Updike and his children in this same piece. Also correspondence to Elizabeth Updike in 1927 from Wm Ball& Sons in West Chester. PA. Price lists and pictures of hardware which me thinks was probably to address the missing handle on the one side of the lap desk. Here is the obituary of the Elizabeth Updike I think may be the one on the correspondence in the desk. Even though it says middle initial S
