A stunning exceptional coromandel & satinwood lined writing box by Hausburg of Liverpool. The top and front are wonderfully inlaid with brass, mother of pearl, abalone and bone with intricate engraved swirls of flowers and leaves.
The top features an intricate and spectacular piece of inlay depicting a safari hunting scene, where the tigers are highlighted in suitably coloured wood veneers. The front depicts another wild hunting scene.

The interior of this stunning Hausburg writing box boasts a turquoise gold-tooled leather writing surface which has simple silver stringing to the edges. The box has a pen tray to the centre, two lidded compartments, a pair of crown topped inkwells and stationery compartment to the front. Last but not least, the box features a secret compartment which, when accessed, reveals three fabulous little drawers veneered in coromandel with turned bone handles.

This rare unique writing slope comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.

Calamander or Coromandel is a valuable wood found in India, Sri Lanka and South East Asia. It has a contrasting hazel-brown colour with black grain. It is a dense, heavy wood that is so popular it has been logged to extinction over the last few hundred years.

This makes Calamander and Coromandel pieces even more special.
