Unusual Satin Birch Davenport Desk

Circa 1860, unusual satin birch davenport desk. The desk is freestanding with a three quarter wraparound gallery and a sloping, hinged writing surface in red leather which is gilded, tooled. It opens to reveal a combination of 4 small drawers with turned bone handles. There is a retracting brass clasp to hold the top in position, which folds away when the desk is not being used, and it retains its original lock and clasp. It has a cupboard to the left (with dummy drawer façade) and, and 4 real drawers to the other side. It is polished and has scrolling feet, and is on an enclosed plinth.
