Seller: robwaltonct14 (3.038) 100%, Location: Deal, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 202738246664 This fine quality writing slope is in very good, original condition. I believe it was made at the end of the C19th or beginning of the C20th. The lacquer work on the lid is superb. It is surrounded by a border of inlaid marquetry which, like the lacquered panel, is in very good condition with the original patina; even the interior boards are decorated with mountain and seascapes. There is a “secret drawer” in the base. This drawer is locked by means of a pin which is only accessible once the box is opened (see photo 7) The writing boards are covered in the original velvet which s in good condition although, like so many writing slopes, the middle section, where the box folds has worn However, this has been effectively and sensitively repaired as can be seen in the photos. The hinges, side handles and all the other fittings are in excellent condition. There is a key and the lock works perfectly. A rare opportunity to acquire a fine quality, unusual writing slope in very good original condition. Dimensions: 16 x 10 x 5.5 inches (40 x 25 x 14cm) See also the Georgian mahogany work box listed.
