Seller: Top-Rated Seller chrisbuckman (9.012) 100%, Location: Lincoln, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 153365912392 1592 Walnut Writing Slope Description A 19th century Victorian period Walnut and brass bound writing slope. It has attractive grain and a brass lock and brass top plate which remains blank. Opening up it reveals a typical interior with pen tray, space for an inkwell and a stamp cubby. The slope is clad with a dark blue tooled writing surface. The lower flap opens to reveal a plain interior as expected. The upper flap has an open area and drawers under a hidden flap. These are accessed by pulling up the stamp cubby side nearest the inkwell, this releasing a spring loaded plate. The pen tray is also on a rocker so can be removed and items stored beneath. The lock works and the hinges and latches are fine. It came with three old books of common prayer, these are later than the box, but may be of interest to the new buyer as part of it's history. If you do not want the books I can omit them from the parcel. Overall a nice example with good colour and grain. Condition Normal age related wear, knocks and scratches. Nicely polished and ready to display. Locks, hinges etc working fine. Wear/splits to the writing surface at the hinge points as normal. Underside felt worn. Included prayer books in poor condition. Repair to spring steel tang of hidden panel.
