    tunbridge ware writing slope

    WB103: A Tunbridge ware writing slope veneered with rosewood and decorated with micro mosaic depicting floral subjects. Circa 1850
    The framing band of the top has a flowing design and is expertly and beautifully executed.
    Unusually for Tunbridge ware the corner detail are very carefully designed so that there are no abrupt joins in the pattern the four corner squares of formal micro mosaic harmonize with the lively longer pattern but also provide strong punctuation to the piece. The careful design and execution and the use of rosewood veneer point to an early example of such work.
    The box also features a pair of original inkwells with turned Tunbridge stick-ware tops.
    There is a working lock and key.

    Rosewood and other woods
