Beautiful antique Victorian 19th century 1800’s writing slope chest box marquetry walnut stunning.
Wonderful Victorian writing slope in elegant walnut with a intricate marquetry edging, amazing key decal and brass escutcheon and engraved panel and corner trim details. Very exquisite detail and craftsmanship.
Interior have the same exceptional quality with the red velvet writing pad, with all of the inserts included and the 3 hidden drawers but missing the secret panel but the mechanism in working and the ink wells are missing, on the inside it the letter rack to hold your envelopes with in a different format with a small writing pad and the envelope rack on the other side, I can find no way of opening the envelope rack and in original condition so in will make a nice addition to the usual opening.
A magnificent piece for a writing collector in antique condition with few original signs of authentic patina.
Also without the original key.
