condition: good
Here is a very rare piece. I have yet to find another one like this. Made by a company in NY called the Neostyle Co. from the late 1800's, it's a portable triangular writing desk. The round piece that the hook hooks onto on the front turns so it locks and unlocks the lid. When the piece opens, the front and 2 sides opens flat. Inside is a piece of slate used as a chalk board. Very unique and for its time, it looks as though the company was really trying to be inventive with the triangular look and designed it to be a retrofuturism piece. Does show some wear such as scratches and marks, but overall clean and displays nicely. Not sure if the inside of the piece is complete; will come as shown in pics. Piece is very solid and there are no loose joints. Perfect piece for collectors. Measures 22.5"x 17"x 11". Please review pics and feel free to reach out with any questions.
