Description
If you like your antique boxes to be in superb condition and virtually 100% original then this box is certainly worthy of consideration. I will not use the word ‘original’ when referring to the various features of the box because other than a Tiny piece of veneer to the back bottom right corner, the replacement working key and the matching pair of brass screw top inkpots Every aspect of this box is original and complete…..including the leather!!!! The box is veneered with flame mahogany, generally regarded as The most attractive cut of the wood. Excellent variation in tones/colour.( Some of the photographs from certain angles give the impression that the dark grain to the top of the box is over powering.in reality it is more subtle). Unspoilt patina. Inlaid brass cartouche, escutcheon and corner pieces. The lid closes perfectly square. Hinges, lock and sliding slope clasp in A1 condition. Office section comprising of the standard twin inkpot sections, wafer/nib slope and dished pen, tray with storage space beneath. The fold line of the leather between the two sections of the box is as to be expected split as it is the only part that is exposed to the effects of sunlight and the environment when the box is closed. However the edges are crisp, the split is extremely fine and barely notice. Far more importantly, the fold lines across both of the writing platform ‘boards’ are fully intact therefore they both remain in situ when opening the box lid and when accessing the two storage sections. The two pull tabs on the boards are original, fully intact with no tearing of the surrounding leather as is very often the case. That fact in conjunction with the degree of original features and the incredibly clean surfaces would certainly suggest that this box has been admired rather than used over the course of circa 150 years.
