Coromandel Mother-of-Pearl Writing Box by W. C. Fuller, 19th Century

About

Magnificent coromandel writing slope by W.C. Fuller, London. Inlaid and engraved in mother-of-pearl, abalone and brass with three exotic warriors on horseback with shields and spears to the top, the front of the box depicting their overnight camp. Opening this magnificent writing slope reveals a burgundy gold-tooled leather writing surface which has simple silver stringing around the edges with mother-of-pearl dots and kite shaped decoration. The writing box has a pen tray to the centre, two lidded compartments, a fabulous pair of ebony turned lidded inkwells with carved mother-of-pearl insets and stationery dividers to the front. Under the smaller writing surface is a small green maker’s label which reads: FULLER, W. C. (Late Batley):1835-39, Manufacturer 13 Brownlow Str. Holborn London. This antique writing slope comes with a fully working lock and tasseled key.
