Antique English Royal Mail Travel Desk With Clock England Mahogany Beautiful Old For Sale

Antique English Royal Mail Travel Desk With Clock England Mahogany Beautiful Old

Up for your consideration is this beautiful mahogany travel desk /officers desk purchased in England. This desk has a clock, blotter holder/ lid and several compartments for stationary. ( one compartment, the upper right side, is a little loose and needs gluing but stays in place on its own....it functions nicely) the corners are sterling silver and the stamp marks are visible. Birmingham 1896. The secretary with slots, the desk blotter with sterling corners, and the clock are three pieces that have been put together perhaps at different times. The clock is American from the Waterbury Clock Co of Waterbury, Connecticut and was inserted several years later. The clock clock reads "patented jan. 29, 1901 jun ? 1907"
The clock works once in a while for a minute or two but that's it. It is not frozen or locked up.... The spring is not wound too tight in my opinion but I'm not a clock expert. May only need a good cleaning.
The secretary reads " BY ROYAL LETTERS PATENT" above the clock. The desk is in good shape for its age. Has been properly taken care of and stored. When the desk top is closed the texture is that of some very old fabric ( taffeta ) glued to the wood on the underneath of the desktop. This is the part that shows when closed and has the initials "HM" . This is from England and has wear consistent with age. The blotter is very old paper in good condition. There are two layers of paper and a piece of cardboard. I am not sure if the "HM" initials are sterling silver as there are no marks to indicate as such. The desk measures: approx 20 1/4" Wide x 6" deep closed x 14 1/2" tall with clock and 19 1/4" desktop when open (total length) beautiful mahogany wood! This is a rare find!
