This beautiful early 20th century studded leather bargueño is based on a 15th century Spanish renaissance design. These portable fall front desks were often used by jewellers and merchants who traveled across the country selling their wares. The piece features sliding leaves to allow the front section of the desk to fall forward creating a flat working area. The top section is entirely clad in leather with a studded pattern along with four sliding latch type locks.
