Superb Georgian Campaign Military Writing Slope in Solid Amboyna.
A fantastic solid Amboyna brassbound and brass inlaid campaign military writing slope, dating back to c.1820.
Unfortunately it’s only downfall is that is doesn’t have a very good lock but it doesn’t stop the box being such a truly amazing piece.
The box has a ebony slip to the inside with a releathered writing surface, two ink wells, a nib slope, a pen slope and a lidded compartment. All the interior is in camphor wood.The box has three secret drawers underneath the writing surface. You can store paper to the back of the inside lid which is also in beautiful solid Amboyna with a camphor wood lid. The box also features a side drawer, with brass handles to the sides.
One of the best writing slopes we have ever had a true beauty.
The box measures 53.5 x 28 and stands 20cm high.
