British Colonial Triple Opening Writing Box

Eearly 19th century

SGD 2,800

A British colonial or Anglo-Indian triple opening brass bound writing box in rosewood with inlaid fleur–de-lis accents.  The interior has the usual compartments for inkwells and a curved pen tray. The writing surface is made of camphor wood with compartments for paper beneath and having secret drawers hidden behind a sprung panel. Note the propping hinge which keeps the back upright, and the countersunk carrying handles on the side.

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.
