Burr walnut Pop-up Davenport

DSCF5460.JPG

This large and very impressive davenport is Victorian. It is burr walnut, the pop-up being decorated with marquetry on boxwood. When closed a trigger hidden within one of the drawers behind the leather writing slope activates the secret mechanism. Drawers with inset handles are found behind the door on the right hand side and, unusually, on the left side is a door also, which opens to offer cupboard space. The back is decorated with simple panelling and the entire piece is offered in original condition.
