The writing surface has a spring loaded locking plate into which the roll tops lock secures itself with 2 sidewards barbs, securely locking them together.
Below the desk area are 3 equal depth spacious drawers which are fitted with solid carved teak handles inset in pairs on each drawer.
The top of the 3 drawers locks using the same key. Both locks in excellent working order.
The curved body of the roll top section is in stark contrast to the squared tapering legs which the bureau stands on.
