A large antique writing slope with brass cartouche and escutcheon. The writing slope has had some light repairs yet, sympathetically restored. All areas of veneer are intact and original as shown in the photos. The inner slopes are covered with non original blue leather type material with replacement pull tabs. The base has been recovered to prevent marking of other surfaces. The small brass retainers holding the top wooden slope is in place and in working condition and blue ribbon fitted to retain mail and correspondence. It has original hinges, keep and lock with a working key. As the photos indicate there is a hardwood pen/pencil cover to the implement compartment with a sloping stamp section. As is fitting for an antique writing slope of this age it has had some use and wear, this does not distract from the looks and quality of the item but fittingly give an age and use of its past. Ink spillage has taken place over time. This is a very nice writing slope which looks lovely on display and would make a lovely Graduation/Birthday present. A beautiful box of the period, measuring 18" x 10"x 6". Thank you for looking.UK POSTING ONLY.
