The travel desk had the function of allowing the work of writing even in difficult situations. The more elaborate models were equipped with drawers and compartments to put in order sheets of paper, envelopes, ink bottle, nib pens, blotting paper, business cards, bottle for talcum powder, sealing wax. The most valuable writing desks were of mahogany, oak or larch, and had a sufficiently rigid shelf for writing. The travel desk was spread from 1500 to the second half of the nineteenth century when the "grand tour" was in fashion, that is the journey to discover the art of Italy and its civilization.
