A lovely circa 1860 English papier mache writing slope. Hinged lid has gilt scrolla at corners and an 8 inch by 6 ½ inch gilt enclosed oval bucolic scene of people and animals. Dimensions: 16 1/2 inches wide by 11 ¾ inches deep by 4 ½ inches high (rear) and 2 ½ inches high (front). Condition: We had this in our shop recently in unrestored condition. We had this item completely restored, including the fitted gilt-tooled green leather writing slope. We also installed a lock with a functioning key. The condition after restoration is excellent.
