Description

Excepcional escritorio de viaje o de barco inglés, original del siglo XIX. Realizado en madera de caoba, con su característico tono rojizo, con adornos en latón pulido que se extienden por todos los bordes. Conserva la cerradura original, de forma estrellada, y también la llave.

Una vez abierto, se extiende la superficie de cuero destinada a la escritura, de color verde botella con todo su perímetro gofrado con una fina línea dorada. Algo desgastado, propio de su uso y antigüedad. La tabla que soporta el cuero se levanta, dejando un espacio para el papel y los sobres. Cuenta con varios compartimentos para plumas, tinta y accesorios de escritura, como los dos originales tinteros de cristal de roca con la tapa de bronce. Los tiradores de los pequeños cajones y compartimentos interiores son de hueso. Presionando en un lateral, se abre un compartimento secreto gracias a un mecanismo oculto, con varios cajones, perfectos para esconder objetos valiosos o personales.

Cerrado presenta una forma de caja rectangular, de pequeñas dimensiones, fácilmente transportable y decorativa en sí misma. Una pieza magnífica para cualquier amante de la escritura y los objetos náuticos antiguos.
