Antique captain's writing box made with solid Mahogany with strong brass & steel screwed strapping, corner brackets and large carry handles with ornate back plates.

Opening this magnificent captain's writing box reveals a large main storage compartment with two lidded compartments either side, a removable pen tray in front and two gilded brass topped glass inkwell in the corners. The underside of the main lid has a hidden storage area. This can only be accessed by pressing up on the central lock peek peg as shown in the pictures. On the right hand edge of the open box holds a very special large cut steel key. This key is used to screw down the box to secure it in transit or to the floor or table for extra safe keeping. These screws are located either side of the box, one close to the key chamber and the other almost opposite the other side.

Military Boxes like this normally come with other secret compartments, this however only has the one in the lid, or that we have been able to find...! Could there be another????

This magnificent military captain's writing box comes with a fully working lock and taselled key. It has all its original untouched exterior finish with original ribbons, keys and inkwells.
