Antique English Regency Period Rosewood Lap Desk Writing Slope Box, circa 1830

About

A very nice quality English Regency period rosewood and brass writing slope, this is a Fine piece remaining in excellent original condition. It opens to reveal an early tooled green leather writing surface with a locking upper that opens to reveal a document storage compartment and an unusual spring-latch hidden compartment; the wall below the inkwells pops away to reveal a pair of mahogany and oak hand dovetailed drawers with tiny bone knobs. The lower slope opens with a small leather swatch to reveal a smaller document box with latticed stringing for storing keepsakes. The writing slope includes an early loan document from 1878 that was found inside of the box. A lovely piece for anyone with a passion for fine Regency furnishings and decorative arts. Measurements: 14 3/4” W x 9 1/2” D x 6” H [closed]; 14 3/4” W x 19 3/8” D x 3 5/8” H [opened]. Condition report: Replaced Victorian inkwells, early and likely original green leather writing surface, stringing for documents likely replaced, original key and hardware, old and typical cracks in rosewood veneers.
