These exquisite little shelves were apparently intended as a combination writing desk and curio drawer set and most likely had a small chair or ottoman to accompany. Not sure if they are from officers, passenger or crew areas but they are beautifully made, and, like almost every bit of woodwork that survived the MS PHILIPPINES beaching, the accessible part is painted over in mahogany colored paint. Underneath, there is a beautiful amber-colored wood veneer and the top is covered in a salmony melamine. In addition to the rakish angular supports, there is a stylish Deco fiddly rail framing each side.
