Antique Writing Box veneered in beautiful figured burr walnut with ebony edging and brass straps running the from top to front. With a vacant shaped initial plate and matching escutcheon.

The interior of the writing slope features a replacement green leather and gold tooled writing surface with ribbons on the top and bottom to aid lifting the writing surface and to gain access to the storage spaces underneath. Above this are two brass top ink wells and a removable walnut pen tray.

Underneath the top half of the writing surface is two hidden drawers. These can be accessed by gently pulling far right inkwell divider. This will cause the false wall to spring forward and allow it to be removed.

This beautiful writing box comes complete with a fully working lock and tasselled key.

Walnut comes in many varieties from America to Europe.

American Walnut is often a warm yellow-brown to purple-brown colour with a straight grain.

European Walnut tends to vary greatly from tree to tree in terms of colour and pattern. From light grey-brown to dark brown with dark grain and irregular markings.

Walnut trees often develop large burr growths which when veneered show beautiful rich coloured swirls.
