Constructed of top-quality solid teak, it is heavy in weight, which is always a sign of quality. The box comprises a hinged top rail, above a sloped front formed by two locking doors; the right-hand door retains its original working lock, with working key, while the left-hand door retains its original brass loop, which allows it to be secured shut via a hook mounted to the interior. The doors and top rail all retain their original brass hinges. The doors open to reveal a sloped bank of a total of 16 compartments, including two inkwell slots and a compartment which includes a lid that also serves as a pen tray. With both doors fully open, the hinged top rail can then be lifted up to allow access to the rearmost, full-width compartment. The interior is able to be configured to the user’s wishes, as all the compartment dividers are removable. Below, the box comprises a low, flat front and the box rests on a moulded plinth. This box is ideal for storing various articles of stationery, including paper, envelopes, pens, pencils and also has provision for two inkwells (ink pots are not provided - these are usually purchased with the ink contained within them). It could even serve as a general tidy around the home or office.
