Description

19th century mahogany writing slope/box of great quality. The gilded brass bands, corners and side handles are finely made, inset and flush with the surface of the wood. Opening the box reveals a blue velvet writing slope that conceals space for stationary. On one side a removable inner tray can be lifted out, and a secret spring catch used to reveal a set of little drawers. Silver-plated topped ink bottles, pen tray and compartments for letter writing accoutrements complete the interior. The box has a Bramah lock but no key. A fine box, it was made for travelling, for someone wealthy, possibly military. It has been well used, with wear and minor scratching tp the brass, but obviously travelled in a case, as the condition and surface is exemplary.
