Brass edged and inlayed kingwood veneered writing box by T Lund, with Bramah type lock, opening to an embossed leather writing surface (original), compartments for inkwells and pens lined with ebony. The writing flap has a separate lock and opens to a rare lift-out tray. When the tray is removed there is a compartment for papers. A sprung panel conceals three secret drawers hidden under the ink and pen compartments. There is great attention to detail and the box is made and finished to the highest quality. The box has a rare pair of candle sticks.
