Large Mahogany Writing Slope, brass bound on the top sides and front, two brass escutcheons, with flush fitting carrying handles which fit neatly into both sides of the writing box.

The interior has its original green baize writing surface, two inkwells, a section for holding pens and pencils and two holes for the included candle sconces. The writing surface folds back to reveal two storage areas and on the back of one of them is crossed ribbon for holding letters and cards, in this compartment is a reading rail this can be removed and located in the exterior back brass edge by two small holes, the lectern inside also allows you to have the box angled to read your notes or book on. The writing also has a drawer on the right hand side which can be opened by removing the retaining pin from the outer edge of the open box.

This pin is also the key to reveal the secret compartment. Lifting out the pen holder at the back of the box will reveal a small hole which the pin can be pressed into. This will cause the back wall of the main compartment to spring forward allowing access to three small drawers.

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