Victorian Walnut Writing Slope
Lovely antique writing slope in beautiful walnut, bound in brass with matching brass escutcheons and an engraved plaque. Inside, the box is fitted with a lovely dark leather writing surface with gold tooling. There is a removable pen tray and a pair of original glass inkwells with white metal screw tops.
The slope is superb quality and is in excellent condition for its age with a beautiful patina. The brass has been lightly polished and it displays very well inside and out. There is no major damage to the wood exterior. There are some small knocks and some old splits but nothing that affects the overall appearance of the box. The box comes with its original key and working lock.
Inside there is some light wear to the leather, particularly along the crease and the leather pull has torn but it doesn't detract from what is a beautiful slope.
