Antique Victorian Gothic Brass Bound Burr Walnut Wood Small Writing Slope Box (Code 2243)
A mid Victorian gothic revival small writing slope. It is of compact form with a single writing surface. It is made of burr walnut over mahogany with brass strapping. The interior reveals a single blue velvet writing surface which lifts up to provide storage beneath. The rest of the box is compartmentalised with a lidded section and other open storage areas. The base is covered in green baise. It is a striking piece and the compact dimensions make it easier to display compared to full sized slopes. Lovely grain to the walnut veneer as you can see.
Lock throws, but latch plate does not line up due to some shrinkage of the wood over the years, Some losses of the detail which can be seen in the images. Typical minor period shrinkage splits in the veneer. Wear to the interior felt, a couple of the small divider woods missing.
