When opened both the box and folder reveal a matching blue silk water paper lining. The Box contains a large storage space for writing implements, letters, and desk pieces and is signed to the rear by the retailer Trussell Brighton.

Coromandel is a valuable wood found in India, Sri Lanka and South East Asia. It has a contrasting hazel-brown colour with black grain. It is a dense, heavy wood that is so popular it has been logged to extinction over the last few hundred years. This makes Calamander pieces even more special.
Blotter (paper) is a highly absorbent type of paper used to absorb ink or oil from writing material, particularly from quills or fountain pens.
