Seller: whatnotrousers (689) 100%, Location: Blakeney, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 133071580013 Gatcombe Antiques A good late Victorian walnut writing slope. Original lock with new key and with brass screw topped inkwell. The top has a brass rectangular vacant cartouche, which has a marquetry border. This matches the brss escutcheon which also has the same merquetry border. The top opens to reveal the writing slope which has been fitted with a new antique green leather skiver with blind and gold tooling. Both writing slope flaps lift to access storage areas beneath. At the top end, there is a central pen tray with a small lidded compartment to the right and a nib tray in the right hand side corner. In the opposite corner is what looks to be the original inkwell which is screw topped although the top is stuck and can't be shifted. It has been cleaned, re-waxed and polished. The green hessian cloth to the base has been replaced and it is in overall excellent condition. Measurements: 35 cm wide, 22,5 deep and 15.3 cm high. Aftercare: Cleaned and restored to a high standard. All you need to do is wipe over with a soft cloth from time to time. You can occasionally use a spray furniture polish that contains bees wax, which will maintain its satin sheen. Please don’t use a silicone spray as this could be detrimental to the waxed surface.
