English Leather Writer's Box, Lap Desk, Slope, Brass Handle
This leather writing box is beautiful, as you can in the initial photos. Covered in a black leather with a brass handle set in a brass plate, the lid opens to reveal the oddest writing slope we've seen. Lifting the lid reveals a writing slope (white) and a green surface with an ink bottle and pen tray in between. Turning the tray over reveals the name, Yarta Saxby, Hallicart. Lifting the green part of the box reveals a stationary and letter holder with two spaces. Green leather, with strap to hold pencils and pens. There is also a small box like space in which writing materials can be stored. This type of English writing box was made for travel.
The box also has a working key and lock.
The slope measures 8 1/2 inches wide, 7 inches deep, and 3 1/4 inches high.
