Gorgeous Edwardian Love Motto Decalcomania Antique Lap Desk Writing Slope (Code 7517)
A particularly fine and attractive Edwardian period writing slope decorated with decoupage. It has been finished to a high standard with lovely colours as you can see in the images, and the surface has been lacquered to protect it. The decoration contains sweet motifs in various locations.
The body appears to be mahogany but it is mostly covered. The lid has a good quality recessed brass lift type handle. The interior is finished in dark blue Morocco leather and there are three ceramic aide-memoir pads. There is a pen tray and a small tray in mahogany and there is also a glass inkwell.
The slope is lockable and there is a key, the lock is a bit sticky through normal age and wear.
Generally good order, the decoupage in good condition under the lacquer. There is a crack through the leather to the slope area. There is further minor damage to the leather and wear and ageing to the ceramic pads.
