Large writing slope

Description

A fine large brass bound mahogany writing slope, in completely original condition. No restoration or renovation has been carried out yet, and is currently for sale as it stands. The general condition is good, the case is sound. All the brasswork is intact, and the plain cartouche on the lid has no inscription. There are a number of marks and scratches to the case, as would be expected to a soldier or gentleman’s travelling writing case. The skiver is in quite good condition, considering its age, although has started to split on the fold. The mechanism and condition of the concealed guinea drawers is excellent. The hessian base cover is also still quite functional, though worn.
