I wish this 19th century English antique lapdesk could talk. Who did it belong to? How did it get to the states and when? I bought it from an antique dealer about 18 years ago.

I love antique wooden boxes. It is unusual now for boxes to be made of wood. I have several antique boxes I have collected. One is a sewing box, several tea caddies and several are all occasion I guess you would call them. Some have mother-of pearl inlay that I like. Because they are all old they have a history but all I know about them are their approximate age probably 19th century and I bought them at different times over the last twenty years.
