Antique Writing Box veneered in Coromandel with brass edging and double stringing, with a large vacant brass initial plate on the top and matching lock escutcheon, contains two secret compartments one with three drawers and another top secret document drawer hidden within the box.

The interior of this fabulous antique writing slope features its original dark blue leather writing surface. The lower half of the writing surface is secured by two sliding brass tabs. It also has its pen tray, removable lidded compartment and two fabulous brass screw top crown inkwells. Releasing these tabs and lifting the lower half reveals a large storage space.
The top half of the writing surface is secured by lock making the storage space underneath perfect for precious letters or documents.

This upper compartment also has a secret! The compartment divider to the left of the right hand inkwell can be pulled up which will release the false back wall of the upper compartment, revealing three ribbon handled drawers.

On the right hand edge of the open box is a small brass retaining pin. Removing this allows the side drawer to be slide open. The drawer also has another secret to reveal! Firstly the drawer must be removed completely, then remove the right hand ribbon handled hidden drawer inside the box and press firmly on the right hand wall of its recess. This will release a secret document drawer inside the side drawers compartment.

This victorian coromandel writing box comes with a fully working lock and tasselled keys.
