A late 19th century mahogany campaign pedestal desk of small proportions, that would have dismantled in minutes for travelling purposes either on a ship or in the field on a military campaign, the top with a removable gallery surrounding a tooled dark blue inset leather writing surface and having one long drawer, this sits on two pedestals, each with three drawers, sitting on turned feet which can be unscrewed when travelling, and fitted with brass military style handles.
This desk has been in the owners family for at least the last four generations and the great grandfather used this desk on his ship when travelling.
