A good looking mid Victorian rosewood writing slope. It has attractive brass inlay to the lid and around the front section. To the sides it has two carrying handles of flush fitting type (campaign style). The lock is fully functional and the box comes with the key.
To the interior is has a green velvet writing surface which appears to be original. It has two drop down flaps as usually found in these items and there is an elasticated fitment to one.
The slope has a flip up pen tray as typical for its type and there is a small secret tray hidden under the pen tray accessed by removing the divider. It comes with two brass topped inkwells which are modern replacements. It does have some faults, see condition report below but it is still a stylish item.
Some small losses and lifting of the brass inlay. Some repairs to the veneer largely at corners and mostly shown in close up for you in the images. General age and wear for period but exterior nicely polished and smart looking as you can see in the images. Writing surface rather worn at hinge point and has been touched up with paint to disguise the wear. Some splits to the pen tray. Inkwells are replacements.
