Striking Kingwood writing box by David Edwards with decorative brass inlays, ornate escutcheons, brass carrying handles, gilded candle sconces and a secret compartment containing two hidden drawers.

The interior features a replacement dark olive leather and gold tooled writing surface, two original crown top brass screw top ink wells and a section for holding pens and pencils. The bottom half of the writing surface lifts up to reveal a cross ribboned back and storage area with a Kingwood reading rail. This can be removed and located in the exterior back brass edge by two small holes, the lecturn inside also allows you to have the box angled to read your notes or book on.
Underneath the top half of the writing surface is further storage and a hidden compartment containing two drawers, which can be accessed by removing the right inkwell and pressing down on the base of its compartment.

Underneath the pen tray are two gilded brass candle sconces which can be placed into holes on the front edge of the open box.

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