Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Wonderful burr walnut exterior, with lovely rich colours and beautiful patterning.
Inlaid label states "Pearce maker 77 Cornhill London". This identifies the maker as Joseph Robert Pearce who was in business from 1846 to 1873.
The writing slope has its original surface of deep blue velvet with gilt detail decoration.
Fitted interior includes two ink bottles with gilt tops, and three hidden drawers.
The quality of detail is evident throughout. The hardware (initial name plate and keyhole escutcheon to exterior, hinges and lock to interior) is gilt brass with decorative engraving.
Working lock with key. The lock is stamped "T Turner London Patent Lever."
