Antique desk, marvel of engineering


I can't even imagine the time it took to design & build something like this. All done with no electricity, motors, or micros.

I think I saw this desk at the museum in Berlin last time I was there or at least one like it. Unfortunately it was a stationary exhibit.
Even putting mechanical engineering aside the detail in the wood and gilding was magnificent.

"Now which of the 20 secret compartments did I put the thing which I urgently need immediately into?"

When art and engineering come together the results are truely remarkable. Thanks for posting this link.
