Description
Superb example of an antique writing slope dating from the late 19th Century. The exterior is made of the most beautiful burr wood with an ornate mother of pearl and pewter inlaid border with a large decorative panel on the top of the box. Inside, the box is fitted with a dark writing surface with a gilt tooled edge. It comes with two different glass ink pots and a pen tray. The top and bottom section of the writing surface lift up to give extra storage space below and the interiors of these sections are decorated in a pretty grained wood effect. It comes with its original working key, although the lock is a little bit stiff. The best description comes from the photographs so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask.
