Seller: theantiquesstorehouse (6.548) 99.7%, Location: Portsmouth, Hampshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 292334720396 ~ Circa 1900 Walnut Writing Slope ~ A fine walnut writing slope dating to the late 1800’s/early1900’s. The slope is of walnut with corners and shield cartouche painted to resemble brass. The slope opens to reveal a gilt edged leather panel which lifts up for storage. It has a section for pen storage and a second smaller section for nibs etc. It has two inkwell compartments but has only one inkwell. The inkwell is of glass with a brass screw top. ~ Dimensions ~ The slope when closed measures 34.5cm (13 ½ inches) by 23cm (9 inches) with a depth of 12.5cm (5 inches). When open, the slope has a length of 47cm (18 ½ inches). It weighs 1.87Kg. ~ Condition ~ Some of the gilt paint is worn. The leather has a split along the middle from use. There is a small chip to one of the sections. The inkwell is well used and the lid won’t come off but it has no damage. The lock is missing its front plate and there is no key, this causes the lid to be a little difficult to close properly at times. Overall the slope is in a good condition with only general light wear from use, but with no major damage. #1351 Sub-Type: Walnut, Product Type: Writing Slopes
