Plain, finished back. Mahogany primary, poplar secondary, yellow wash interior. Provenance – descended in Susan West’s family.

There were no records from Traveller’s Rest to confirm this. Condition – old refinish, large shrinkage crack extending clear across top, repair patch to back near hinge, several minor veneer chips and separations. Brass hinges appear original.
