A 19th. Century Top Quality Burr Walnut And Brass Inlaid Writing Slope.

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: John Hubbard Antiques

This antique has been viewed 17 times in the past month with the most views from France.


A wonderful quality burr walnut and brass inlaid writing slope. Original brass vacant central plaque with double line brass inlay to the top and front and with flush brass handles to the sides. Beautiful gold and embossed leather in black, with three "secret drawers" and a side drawer locked by a brass concealed internal lock. Original working key for inner compartment. Alas, no key for the main Bramah lock. As an interesting aside, there's a set of printing plates included for presumably a previous owner. See images for details.
Stock no: 4679
Circa 1830
Size: 19.5/8" wide x 10.1/2" deep (21" open) x 9.1/4" high
Dealers note: This is an exceptional, very large, writing slope in wonderful condition. Almost certainly the best currently available and without doubt the best I've seen in over 50 years. Very rare and very original and with a host of features including a concealed side drawer and three secret drawers and original inkwells, all help to make this a superb gift for someone very special or even the most discerning collector.
We are available by appointment only Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5.30pm, other times by arrangement.
