Skeleton Desk

Individually designed wooden theatrical skeleton desk salvaged from the set of a play called Three Hours After Marriage, a play by John Gay, Alexander Pope and John Arbuthnot, performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford's Swan Theatre circa 1996. The play was originally written in 1717 and is a satire on false tastes in learning, bogus science and bad writing. Comes complete with a framed provenance including a photo of the set.  The desk was used by the main character, Dr Fossil. After the production closed in late 1996, the desk was to be found in The Falstaff Experience, Most Haunted Museum in Stratford. Finished in black and green, in good used condition,.
