Antique Victorian Leather Document Writing Box
Secure Payments By
A lovely leather covered writing box dating to the late 19th century. The outer is embossed to resemble a book and when opened reveals a deep blue leather interior. One side folds down to act as a writing slope while the other side has three flaps which open to a pen holder, a document pouch and an inkwell section. This section has a glass inkwell and a wooden pen tray but it also conceals a secret compartment. When the piece of wood next to the pen tray is lifted a secret tray shoots out from under the fittings. The box comes with it original working bramah key (which must be pushed right in for the duration of the turn to lock/unlock) The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask.
In a Nutshell Antiques & Interiors Ltd has clarified that the Antique Victorian Leather Document Writing Box (LA369073) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1890
The box is in good condition for its age. It has been well used and the leather has worn over time and has some stains, wear and minor losses which has created a wonderful authentic worn patina. Inside, it is generally clean and tidy with a few small marks and signs of use and some wear along the leather creases but nothing detrimental. Overall the box displays very well and is certainly a nice usable item.
