Rosewood Writing Box

Dark, polished Rosewood Writing Box, late C19th, with decorative mother-of-pearl insets on the lid and at the keyhole. White metal stringing frames the lid and the front of the box. The veneer has an historic split across the lid see photos due to 150 years of use and likely changes in humidity. Inside, the slope is covered with Teal-blue, gold embossed paper (possibly original) with fabric lifting tabs, and there is a pen-holder. Underneath the lower slope, the interior of the box is papered with a Teal-blue and Gold paper. A richly coloured and decorative box, inside and out, which deserves a new home. No key. JB 0274
