Item:153459634506This is LARGE mahogany campaign writing slope with brass fittings. The box itself is in generally good order but it needs some TLC to bring it back to its former glory. It does not come with a key. One of the main compartments is kept shut by 2 small brass latches - there is some damage to the wood by the latches - see penultimate photo. The secret drawers or compartments are accessed by opening the other main compartment and removing the base. They are hidden behind a spring loaded strip of wood. The mechanism for holding the spring in place is not working so it springs open each time the base is removed so this will need some attention too. See photos 6 and 7. Pull tabs to pull open the main compartments are also missing. At the moment a strip of tape is acting as the tab. Anyhow, that all said, it's a nice solid thing. Gorgeous recessed side handles. A decent size too. I have taken plenty of photos to allow you to judge the condition too. The approximate dimensions when folded up are as follows:Length - 22 inchesHeight - 8 inchesWidth - 11 inchesWeight - to be confirmed Shown with a bottle of Champagne to give you an idea of scale. Any questions please ask. I post promptly and pack carefully. (I usually try to pack on the day of purchase and post the following day). Please look at my other items. I am happy to combine postage or parcels.*** Please note that I am unable to post between 12 and 18 April inclusive ***Style/ Period:Victorian, Product:Writing slope box, Age:1850-1899, Primary Material:Wood, Sub-Type:Walnut, Original/Repro:Original
