Antique Writing Box made of solid Mahogany bound with square brass & steel screws, has two campaign flush fitting handles either side of the writing box and has a side drawer, all in fantastic original condition and superb patination.

The interior has two writing surfaces both with its original baize cloth, on one side has the cabinet makers label J.J.Taylor which reads as follows:

Fine Polished Scissors & Patent Pen-Knives.

J.J.TAYLOR

Table, Knife Cutlers & Razor Maker

Portable Desk & Dressing Case Manufacturer

22 Lavements Moorfields London

An Assortment of Combs & Brushes, Work Boxes & Dressing Cases, Fitted & repaired.

On the back of the other writing surface has its original green ribbon for holding calling cards or letters and holds the wooden book support for the lectern.

The Writing Box also has its original candle sconces hidden underneath the right hand cover, the left hand cover when removed shows a sloping nib compartment, the ebonised pen tray has turned bone handle and a compartment underneath. The bass lectern to the right hand side of the interior has been replaced and aged to look original to the box due to being broken & missing and the box also has a small old repair (hardly noticeable but worth mentioning) to the flap where the flap catch goes into the flap to secure it when shut.

Truly magnificent piece of History.

Georgian writing box comes with a pair of original inkwells, has working lock with tasselled key.
