British Colonial Rosewood Writing Slope Box

Late 19th century

A stunning British colonial rosewood white cedar writing slope box. The entire outer area features exceptional inlay work depicting stylized floral designs. The box opens to a fitted interior with four pigeonholes and four small drawers and stands on four turned round rosewood feet.

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.  The Indian rosewood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
