19th Century English Victorian Antique Oak Writing Desk Traveling Box

About

An unusual and most attractive English writing box from the late Victorian period, the box is crafted of beautifully patinated and worn oak. The top has two recesses that cut glass wells rest within, these easily lifting free and portable, each with a carved rosewood lid; we believe they are likely original, though it is difficult to verify with any degree of certainty. A cast brass hoop handle is decorated in relief with a repeating Greek-key decoration. A pair of drawers rest in the front, each with a recessed squared brass pull; the upper is a full storage drawer, the lower withdrawing a small oak box that flips open to reveal a full writing slope with paper storage compartments. The entire box rests over original cast brass bun feet. For the serious collector of fine English boxes, this is a magnificent little find that remains in beautiful original condition throughout. Measurements: 14 3/8” W x 10” D x 9 1/2” H [box]; the writing slop opened measures 12” W x 17 1/2” L x 1 7/8” H Condition report: Some chipping to edges of cut glass inkwells, these apparently original. Crack in underside plank. Wear/cracking to the leather writing surface. Old patinated surface, quite early finish. Some molding separations.
