Seller: leftoverstew (2.232) 100%, Location: Saint Petersburg, Florida, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 193163068500 Beautiful antique writing slope measures approx. 14" x 10" x 6". It has a beveled edge around the lid that has been ebonized and has alternating inlays of brass and mother-of-pearl. In the center of the lid is a blank brass escutcheon surrounded by an ornate ebonized ribbon which is missing some of the bone (?) inlay. Inside, the tooled leather writing surface is in excellent condition and is likely a replacement of the original. There are compartments for the original glass inkwell with metal lid, a pen holder (lifts to reveal more storage underneath) two sloped stamp slots and a narrow slot that holds a wooden rule. The bottom has been covered in a burlap fabric. The box is in very nice condition. There is a fine crack in the lid as pictured. Scattered surface scratches. Several areas where the veneer has been repaired, especially at the corners and lower edges. Some veneer loss at the bottom edge of the left side. We do not have the key. This is an antique item and is in very nice condition but expect to see signs of age and use. We are happy to provide additional photos on request so that you can make a better determination of condition. We purchased this at auction. Inside, we found the pictured retail tag with the item's description. We included it for your reference only and do not guarantee the accuracy of the information. THANKS FOR VIEWING OUR LISTING! Please review our Sales Tax, Shipping and Returns policies below. SALES TAX: We are required by law to collect and remit sales tax for all sales delivered within the state of Florida. All sales with Florida shipping addresses will be charged sales tax. If you have a resale tax id, you may claim credit for the tax paid on your purchases when you file your Florida sales tax return. We are not able to selectively remove the sales tax charge from Florida sales, nor can we refund the sales tax to you. Beginning in January and throughout 2019, certain states will begin assessing sales tax on items even if purchased from a seller in another state. If you do not live in Florida and are charged sales tax, please know that this is your state law that requires collection of sales tax and that we do not receive that portion of your payment. It is collected by eBay and remitted to your state Dept. of Revenue by them. You can learn more about online sales tax changes by searching eBay help files or by visiting your state's website. SHIPPING: We are always happy to combine shipping on multiples items whenever it is safe to do so. If you purchase multiple items, please wait for an adjusted invoice or send us a request to update the shipping cost. If you do pay the eBay generated invoice(s) and the actual shipping cost turns out to be less than you were charged, we will automatically refund overages of $2 or more. We use plenty of quality packing materials so that your item(s) will arrive in the same condition as they left our shop. We do recycle/re-use clean, usable packing materials when possible. If your item arrives damaged in shipment (this almost never happens) please save all packing materials and take photos of the condition of the package as it arrived. We will refund your full purchase price including shipping costs as soon as we have the documentation needed for us to file a claim against the shipper. We do recognize that shipping costs can seem extremely high for certain items. We do not add any handling or materials fees to the actual cost of shipping. eBay retains 10% of the shipping charges we collect from our buyers. We will always use the least cost, safest method to ship your item(s). For purchases of $250 or more, we require signature on delivery, for your protection and ours. We offer free local pickup, and, in certain cases, local delivery, in the Tampa Bay area. If you are interested in having us deliver an item, please contact us prior to bidding or making a purchase. For furniture and other large items, you, the buyer, should make all arrangements, including payment, with the shipper of your choice. Once you have contracted with a shipper, we will coordinate pick-up logistics directly with them. We have had very good experieces with, and highly recommend, uShip. We appreciate our international buyers and we apologize but we DO NOT SHIP INTERNATIONALLY except through the eBay Global Shipping Program. It is nearly impossible for us to determine the customs import charges and restrictions for various countries. In addition, tracking international shipments often ends once they reach Customs in the destination country, making it impossible for us to confirm delivery. Thank you for your understanding. RETURNS: Items we sell are primarily antique, vintage and pre-owned items. We do not accept returns unless the item you received is materially different from our description and photos. Please view all of the photos carefully - the item you will receive is the exact item that is shown in our listing unless otherwise noted in the description. We make every attempt to describe the condition in detail but sometimes we overlook small flaws. If that is the case, please contact us prior to initiating a return so that we can work with you on a satisfactory resolution. We strive to provide top-level customer service and welcome the opportunity to find a mutually acceptable solution before entering into the eBay dispute system. Please note that all china, porcelain, glass and crystal items are marked with non-toxic, UV visible, washable marker. Please inspect your items carefully when unpacking them and before using or washing. Items with the mark removed are not eligible for returns.
