A spectacular and very showy Victorian desk set consisting of a dome topped stationery box, perfect for personalized cards and envelopes, and a desk-top blotter.
The two pieces are covered in a plethora of cabochon polished Onyx stones, all in undamaged condition.
The box opens to reveal a fitted interior having been re-lined in a hand-marbled paper; the interior of the lid retains it's original silk lining.
The box came to me without a key, it has a tiny escutcheon, I was lucky enough to find a key which doesn't work but small enough to fit and act as a display key, which I finished with a blue tassel.
A few tiny dings to the exterior of the stationery box, insignificant and mentioned purely for accuracy. The box measures 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" and standing 6" tall. The blotter measures 10 3/4" x 8".
