Description
Please see my stock page for the largest selection of writing boxes and jewellery boxes available on this website. Very early (possibly slightly pre) Victorian inlaid rosewood combination jewellery – writing box in very fine condition. Stands on the original turned wooden ‘bun’ feet. Inlaid to the top and front with pierced Mother of Pearl roundels and pewter strips…..all original, complete and all in excellent condition. Attractive profile with the gentle tapering sides to the based section and lid and the raised top panel. The lid closes perfectly square. Original hinges and lock, key for decorative purposes only. The lid interior and top storage section have been neatly relined by a previous owner with plush padded velvet panels. All lining is free of stains and tears. The writing box location is a removable unit located to the front of the box and is accessed by removing a brass locking rod located to the box interior to the right of the lock. The unit springs open nicely. Made of solid mahogany it is in marvellous condition. The office section comprises of a wafer/nib/wafer section, inkpot section with what is assumed to be the original inkpot in unused condition and central section with gilt and blind embossed lid. Small gilt and blind embossed leather sloping surface for quick notes. I must confess to be a little confused re’ the use of different colour leathers….they certainly appear to be original to the box and the two different patterns on the small lid are Exactly the same as 2 of the 3 patterns on the sloping surface but I have not come across the use of different colours previously, albeit both colours were common on many boxes of the period. The box opens up to provide a larger sloping writing surface, this time featuring embossed green velvet, again with a common pattern. The original hinges are in excellent condition. The entire unit looks to be in unused condition. No ink stains. Original inkpot (?). All storage sections within the office section and beneath the main writing surface in spotless condition. No marks or tears on the leather and probably the main aspect indicating little to no use is the condition of the velvet with No tears to the fold line, no wear to the velvet and the pull tab is still present and intact. One fine looking box. Unpacked weight 2Kg
