Janet Frame's writing desk

The most dramatic thing about the condition of the desk is that it is in two pieces [NZ]
From the conservation report: "The top of the desk, including the leatherette, has been sawn through alongside the left hand pair of drawers; the cut was made from one side and then the other, and they did not quite meet. The two pieces have been rejoined with three timber dowels let into the end grain of the timber top, but these are now loose and broken. A rail that originally joined the inner legs at the back and directly underneath the top is now missing."
