Description

Antique Kingwood writing box with brass edging, ornate brass inlay, campaign style flush fitting handles and small secret drawers hidden inside.

The front and top of the kingwood writing box are adorned with brass dots, curved six-sided stars framed by bold stringing. The top has an initial plate engraved with a crown and the letters “C. R”.
On either side of the box is a flush brass carry handle.

Lifting the lid reveals a black leather writing surface with gold tooling. The lower half is held in place with a sliding brass tab, and storage space with cross ribbon backing is underneath.
The upper half is lockable and features a similar ribbon backing and storage space as well as access to its secret compartment.
Removing the right-hand inkwell from the box and pressing it on the bottom right-hand corner of its compartment will cause a false wall to spring inside the upper storage space. Behind which are two small drawers with turned bone handles.

This writing box comes with a fully working lock and tasselled keys.

All our items come with an authentication certificate with an image, as well as our latest catalogue, care instructions and separate invoice for insurance purposes. On top of this, our items come with 14 days no quibble money-back guarantee and are all fully insured for when shipping.
