English Rosewood & Satinwood Combination Stationary Box & Writing Slope Table Cabinet Size
This is a rare find. It is a combination stationary box and writing slope made from rosewood and satinwood. The rosewood forms the outside of the cabinet. The cabinet sits on a raised platform of exotic wood and rosewood. Two large panels are featured on the front of the cabinet. The panels are made of rosewood surrounded with an exotic wood molding. The cabinet measures 11 1/4 inches wide, 8 15/16 inches deep, and 13 inches high.
To open the box, lift the lid first to release the front of the cabinet which when placed in the down position provides you with a large writing surface. The surface is covered with a leather panel with gold gilt in a criss crossing pattern. The writing surface measures 9 inches wide x 11 inches deep.
The interior of the cabinet reveals a five-section stationary rack, pull out drawer with three compartments for writing materials. There are two brass hooks that are used to hold pens or pencils. The timber used for the stationary rack and drawer is satinwood.
The cabinet is in very good condition. There appears to be slight repair on the right rear side of the cabinet top. The rosewood is in fine condition. The satinwood forming the inside of the cabinet is also in very nice condition. There are no obvious nicks or cracks in the wood.
This is an unusual piece of English writing cabinetry. The cabinet would look especially wonderful on a desk, and would serve as a very nice organizer of letters, and correspondence.
