Antique Rosewood writing slope on matching stand, and with hidden compartments, c1830.
The box is embellished with brass inlays and detaches from the stand if required. When open it is stable enough to write on. Inside is a green leather writing surface, each side lifts up to reveal a storage area. The pen tray can be pushed down at one end so that it lifts up to give a hidden storage area. In addition, pulling up the divider on the bottom left of the box causes the inner frame to pop off, revealing three small drawers. This mechanism works very smoothly.
There is a large crack in the base of the box,as can be seen in the last photograph, but this does not affect the stability of the box.
