Description
Please see my stock page for the largest selection of writing boxes available on this website. Early Victorian inlaid rosewood writing box in very good condition. Slightly larger than most boxes of the style, measures approximately 15 ¾” x 9 ¼” x 4” tapering down to approximately 2 ½” in height. Unspoilt patina with even colour and grain. Inlaid with Mother of Pearl cartouche, escutcheon and pierced roundels and pewter strips. One small piece of nicely replaced veneer to the bottom right corner of the sloping front, all inlays original. The lid and sloping top close square and true. Original hinges and lock with a replacement working key supplied. The interior brassware has not been cleaned to a gold like lustre as the patina suits the box and contributes to the character of the item. The office section comprises of the standard twin inkpot sections, wafer slope and removable central lidded section complete with the original turned knob. The inkpots are replacements, are a matching pair with screw on brass tops, both in excellent condition. The storage section beneath the writing platform is in very clean condition. The box has the bonus of still having the original leather. As to be expected it is split along the fold line of the two sections of the box due to the fact that it is the only place exposed to the elements when the box is closed. However, the leather is fully intact to all other areas therefore the writing surface remains securely in place when accessing the storage area beneath. Though many argue that a replacement leather is not a vital necessity in this case the type and style of the leather is a considerable factor and it would be highly unlikely that similar could be obtained. A fine example of the style.
