Victorian Walnut Writing Slope/box With Secret Drawers & Working Lock

Externally the beautifully figured walnut veneer is in nice condition for a piece approximately 150 years old, as is the brass edging that runs around the top and front and the very fine brass stringing which is set just inside this. Inlayed to the top and front are a matching brass cartouche and escutcheon. Internally all the brassware is in good working order and as mentioned earlier the lock is working and comes complete with its key. The writing surface has been proffesionally replaced with a black skiver with blind and gold tooling and has matching ribbon tags each end to allow the flaps to be lifted and access the compartments below. Under the pen tray and stamp slope are two secret drawers, these can be accessed by lifting the division between the ink well and stamp slope.

This will release the sprung cover to reveal the drawers. As can be seen by the photos this high quality, beautiful slope is a true example of Victorian craftsmanship and would make a lovely gift or enhance anyones collection.
