Rosewood writing slope

Not in stock

Grain figuring does not come any better then this.

It is box in with broad bands of Kingwood, the veneers are perfect.

The box is made from exotic and very expensive Rosewood with it's decorative graining and attractive rich colouring. The top is beautifully inlaid with pewter stringing including a central plaque acting as a cartouche, which could be engraved if desired.

It has two ink wells very much of that age.

I would think the lock is a replacement, it is French and the box is English.

Measures: 14x9x5 ins ; 35 cm x 22,5 cm x 12,5 cm

Weighs: 3kg


These little artworks had a privileged location on the best english homes during the XIX century, accompanied the nobles on their journeys and the senior offices in their campaigns. They were extremely useful and also a sign of distinction.

Take this opportunity. The current global economic situation has made this type of works have a bargain price when valuing the wood they are made of, their age and their perfect finish. But this situation will no longer last as probably soon  these works will reach again the prices they used to have.
