High quality example by W.H. Took of Liverpool, veneered in stunning figured walnut inlaid with nickel silver stringing, dots and engraved flowers on all four corners with ornate escutcheon and vacant initial plate to the top. Featuring marvellous craftsmanship throughout, from its crisply executed exterior to the beautifully crafted interior, it retains its original ivory tools, inkwell, vesta and leather boxes for stamps, and wafers (a type of letter sealer).

The compartment beneath the slope is veneered in exotic satinwood with secret drawers which are revealed by a clever mechanism housed in the right inkwell compartment. A really nice feature of this box is the tooled aide- memoire applied to the underside of the slope. Stamped on the secret drawer cover for W.H. TOOK of Church Street, Liverpool, it shares many similarities with the work of Hausburg, also from Liverpool.

This fabulous writing slope has fully functional lock & tasselled key.
