Seller: ennarepea (1.530) 100%, Location: PENCLAWDD, Nr SWANSEA, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 264359458562 A SUPER LARGE VICTORIAN DECORATIVELY INLAID COLONIAL STYLED WRITING SLOPE c1885 This writing slope is unusual and is a most striking design. The decorative inlay, fretwork and overall size all contribute to setting this style of writing slope apart from the others that are of a more traditional design. Please see the attached photographs which are an integral part of this description. All items are described to the best of my knowledge, however I usually don't state the obvious as this can be seen from the numerous photos provided. Please appreciate that all items are antique/vintage/used and therefore are likely to show varying degrees of age related wear and tear. If you want to ensure 100% pristine condition may I suggest you buy new. These writing slopes are uncommon and it is unusual to find one in first class condition, particularly given their origins. This example is in generally good overall order, both externally and internally. As shown in the photos, one of the writing boards has, over the last 120 or more years, become slightly bowed which in turn has put the lock out of line and rendered it inoperative. Personally I don't think this detracts significantly from the overall decorative look or indeed function of the slope itself. Internally the skiver appears to have been replaced some time ago with a soft green felt like cover. Within the writing area, there is a compartment below the writing board surface for stationery and there are also three small drawers (see photos.) Overall a very decorative and desirable writing slope being offered at a very competitive price. Dimensions: 37.0 cm x 29.5cm x 20.0 cm This item can be shipped worldwide, subject to the schedule of excluded countries noted in the listing.
