There is a pen groove and square depressions for two ink wells. The compartments for notepaper, pens, stamps etc have two shelves.
The desk is structurally solid but has the evidence of a long and useful life with the odd scratch, ink stain and ring marks on the writing pad. Some of the dowels on which the fret work pediments sit have lost their tips. The castors are a later addition and easily removed.This is an extremely handsome piece which graces a room.
