Seller: dancap64 (2.052) 99.2%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 153558155730 Presenting an unusual Writing Slope with what appears to be a vanity section which includes interior mirror and a section under the writing slope which folds over to reveal or conceal items . The writing slope also contains an ink pen, nibs as well as an inkwell There is an inscription to the cartouche which Reads " Presented to Mrs WM FOY by a friend WHO Received Good Service in a Time of Great Affliction 20th Oct 1897" I think this box originally came from America , and it may be a mere coincidence , but it may have some relevance to William Foy and the Seven Day Adventist Church , may be someone out there may know. The interior to the writing slope is in good condition , the outside to the box is covered with mother of Pearl and some other type of inlay possibly a material which is antique but won't allow me to mention and which is legal to sell, but I am no expert and I am not selling it as guaranteed . There are a few of the inlaid pieces missing and a number of smaller pieces as shown in the photos The writing slope comes with its original lock and key , both in working condition . Dimensions are Closed Length 30.5 cms Depth 21.75 cms Height 14.5 cms Usual wear to surface commensurate with age and use. Thanks for viewing.
