This exquisite antique piece is a uniquely-designed furniture adornment for those who like to make a presentation out of the simplest daily routines. Store your handcrafted letters and important correspondence in behind the glass-paned doors, along with your stationary and fresh envelopes. The original silver ink blotter and quill holder, with slots for two quills, will add a new sense of authenticity to your letters. Meanwhile, store your fashion lady's accessories within the fold-out drawer, as well as her own miniature letters within the lidded box. The manufacturers of the Victorian era put painstaking work into making the ordinary into the extraordinary, as showcased by this beautiful piece -- no longer will writing and storing your letters be a dull, dreary task. No longer will your fashion lady have to keep her own mini accessories in some random box somewhere -- let her store her things with yours, in this precisely-designed furniture piece.

CONDITION: Generally excellent. The only minor issue is that some of the decorative metalwork is missing, most notably on the left and right doors. Only the most minor of expected, typical wear to the wood, such as tiny surface scratches here and there, to be expected with any antique woodwork. All of the moving parts work very well, with sturdy brass hinges: top lid, both doors, placket lid, and slide-out desk are all in good working condition. Metalwork is intricate and has the right mixture of vibrant and deep tones, to give that authentic look only accomplished by genuine antique pieces. Exceptional carved work to the wood; indicative of expertise and care. This is the type of piece you want to have in your collection, surrounded by your prized dolls.
