A quite wonderful and rarely seen desk set consisting of a dome-topped stationery or letter box and a desk blotter.
The box is beautifully mounted with quality brass fittings and a stunning Malachite in the centre. The stationery box has the same brass fittings and again a stone in the middle.
The box opens to reveal a fully fitted interior having been professionally re-fitted; the lid retains the original silk lining.
The blotter is backed in embossed leather and again the interior professionally re-lined in a hand-marbelled paper.
The box comes complete with a key and both pieces are in superb condition. The box measures 9" x 4 1/2" x 6" tall with the interior width of the full length compartment measuring 7 3/4". The blotter measures 11 1/2" x 8 1/4". Pen and stationery are not included in the sale.
