The top of the davenport has a lovely stationary box which has a lid which is matched walnut half veneer and beautifully edges with banding's of ebony with very fine stringing and to the rear ia a pretty gallery. When the lid is lifted this reveals the wonderful stationary box fitted interior which has a three section letter compartment to the left. Then to the right there are two ink bottle compartments with a two section compartment and above these there is a pen rest. 
 
There is then a lovely green tooled leather writing slope which is framed in lovely ebony banding with very fine stringing, this the lifts to access the interior. A lovely feature is that the fall has a working lock and key, and the drawers have all working locks and is complete with one key to operate them. In addition the stationary box has a working lock and separate key.  
 
The interior is wonderful being finished in birds eye maple veneers and has four lovely drawers with turned ebony knobs, the top two are dummy drawers whilst the lower two drawers are usable.
