It comprises of two flush brass handles on each side. The interior comprises of the writing sectioned slope. What is most unusual about this particular writing slope is the secret drawers. They are activated and revealed by the small piece of metal on the key ring. You place this metal bar inside the small hole hidden under the a small piece of cloth on the right hand side compartment.
