Seller: ukfranc-5mknt (312) 98.8%, Location: Honiton, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 173958369786 A large three section George 111 military campaign writing slope which I believe dates about 1800-1810. Lock stamped J. Bramah Patent. So it is no later than 1813 when it became Bramah and Sons.. Joseph Bramah died in 1814. Thus it would have been made at the time of the Napoleonic Wars.I am not an expert but I think that it is teak or mahogany with rosewood interior. It does need some restoration, (see codition description) but a campaign writing slope would do after 200+ years.It is basically sound and solid and worth the effort..The lid lifts to a flat surface and in turn this opens to a velvet lined slope. Each of these sloping sections lifts to acess storage areas. There is a drawer in the side which locks with a pin (now absent).It is 18" wide, 10.5" deep and 7" high.when closed. Condition: Nice slope. Iit does need restoration but it is basically sound.. Bottom escutcheon (decorative only: no lock behind it) needs replacing. I have one similar included., Brass plate needed to top but there is a wooden template. The rest of the brassware is original. No key. Crack to lid. Small piece veneer needed by side drawer. drawer runs smoothly. Lid intetior needs refitting. No inkwells, pen rest,, lid to small compartment. Some screws replaced in lid hinge. It no longer has the locking pin. The black velvet on the slope is a bit shabby but may be OK.. . ., Style/ Period: Georgian, Product: Boxes, Age: 1800-1849, Primary Material: Wood/ Woodenware, Product Sub-Type: Writing slope., Original/Repro: Original
