Description

A particularly fine and attractive Edwardian period writing slope decorated with decoupage. It has been finished to a high standard with lovely colours as you can see in the images, and the surface has been lacquered to protect it. The decoration contains sweet motifs in various locations.

The body appears to be mahogany but it is mostly covered. The lid has a good quality recessed brass lift type handle. The interior is finished in dark blue Morocco leather and there are three ceramic aide-memoir pads. There is a pen tray and a small tray in mahogany and there is also a glass inkwell.

The slope is lockable and there is a key, the lock is a bit sticky through normal age and wear.

Stock Code: 7517 NV11-4
