Antique crotch mahogany folding desk. There is brass key that locks and unlocks the desk but do not believe its original.
Overall 18"L 12"W 8"H. The green felt is 14.5" 15". 

There's secret compartment that reveals two more draws which is pretty cool (pictures and 4) and there is some sort of inscription in the wood (second to last photo) that is illegible to me. 

Overall good condition. Surface scratches that could most likely be buffed out. There is chip in the mahogany in one spot and the wood lip on the bottom "drawer" latch is chewed up. I'm assuming the felt is replaced, but overall it's beautiful piece.
