Striking ebonized coromandel & Satinwood lined writing box with exquisite engraved inlays of mother of pearl and abalone depicting hunting scenes to the top and front. The attention to detail is astounding.

The interior features a gold tooled and leather writing surface, two brass top inkwells and a complete tool pad with mother of pearl ruler, letter opener, dip pen and brass pencil.

The writing slope can lifted both ways to reveal storage compartments with the top compartment having hidden draws. These can be accessed by removing the right hand inkwell and pressing the bottom right hand side of the inkwell compartment.

Frederick Ludwig Hausburg and his uncle August Wilhelm Bernard Promoli were partners in a business selling clocks and watches. They initially had a shop in Paris before they opened retail premises in an old post office building at 24 Church Street, Liverpool. The business expanded, going on to specialise in the sale of both British-made and imported goods of high quality, and was renamed Hausburg in 1841
