British Colonial Cylinder Writing Box

Late 19th century

An unusual British colonial writing box, designed as a cylinder desk. The top opens to reveal a fitted interior with several compartments to keep pens and papers. It also features a slide out tray with two brass pulls that can be used as writing surface.

The box is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing.
