This is a lovely piece which would have graced a large Victorian or Georgian desk.
It is a blotter with a cover of coromandel wood and inset Fleur de Lis in brass.
The back of the book is leather and the inside is blue watered silk with two pockets to hold papers.
It would have been a quality and expensive item in its time.
Condition: There is a missing piece at one corner and a tiny chip at the other. The spine is loose at the top and the leather has faded. The watered silk on the inside has some losses. There is the remains of an old used blotter which is almost artistic in the pattern.
Size: 12 by 8 1/2 inches.
