A most handsome example of an English stationery cabinet, the cognac coloured Walnut beautifully complimented by the intricately engraved bras mounts to the two front doors.
The box comes complete with a working key and once opened, reveals a fully fitted interior. The right hand door opens first, with a note board on the interior. The brass pin then has to be removed in order to open the left door, the underside houses a Walnut framed removable ceramic "slate" used to write and erase notes.
The top of the box houses the (professionally replaced) calendar cards, creating a perpetual calendar to last a lifetime.
There are two crystal inkwells each with a hinged brass lid, which sit either side of the removable pen tray. Below is a drawer accessed by the polished brass handle which has an Art Nouveau feel to it, typical of the 1890/1900 era.
Beautiful condition with the footprint measuring 13 1/2" x 8 1/4" and standing 12" tall at the rear.
Complete with a working key. Dip pen and stationery not included.
