Beautiful Rare Victorian Amboyna Abalone Writing Slope Writing Box

This beautiful item is a rare, exotic amboyna with abalone inlay writing box/slope.

The slope is very artistically decorated with a lot of abalone inlay as can be clearly seen in the pictures.

The slope/box has been carefully cleaned and lightly polished so the rare, exotic amboyna grain look very vivid especially contrasting against the abalone inlay and top escutheon.

The inside of the slope is lined with deep royal blue velvet and is in fine condition. 1 inkwell is present and in good condition as is the straight rule (ruler).

The entire slope/box looks to have had no expense spared.

In good condition with some slight markings commensurate with age.

Some of those markings with age include a frayed split on the top of the box that can be seen in the first 3 pictures. This split is not a deep crack and can be restored/repaired. The slope is also missing the keyhole surround. The abalone inlay is in good condition and is mostly all there.

A rare and highly luxurious amboyna Victorian writing slope that sell for hundreds.
