This would have been the desk used by a clerk to a shipping concern or customs brokerage etc. and was made to be portable so it could be taken daily to whichever warehouse, bonded store or office the clerk was assigned to work at. It would have been used on top of whichever writing table or crate was available to rest it on.

Circa. 1850
