Item:323837508154‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not consider to be beautiful or useful.’ William Morris French Antique Nap III Writing Slope w/2 Inkwells/Working Lock & Key – 1850’s A French writing slope from the 1850’s in varnished mahogany, with two brass cap glass replacement inkwells from the 1900’s, a brass inlay on the top lid and a working lock and key. Once opened, the slope has a burgundy velvet writing surface and a dip nib pen storage area with the original lid. The slope measures 14 inches wide, 4 ¾ inches high and 9 5/8 inches closed. Open, it is 19 ¼ inches long. It weighs 5 lbs. The interior storage area is lined in burgundy felt and there is a crack across the bottom which has not impacted the box’s closure. The varnished finish has some small cracks, normal considering its age and it has been cleaned and restored decades ago. There is a black felt pad on the bottom to prevent scratching on surfaces. It is a good-sized writing slope, very functional and useful and in overall very good condition.
