Antique English Writing Box
This is a lovely antique English writing box. The wood box features a brass plate on the top which is usually inscribed with the owners name or initials. The top corners are wrapped in brass and brass inserts decorate four points of the bottom portion of the box. The interior of the box features a felt writing platform and compartments for holding paper, inkwells and quills. There is a brass escutcheon for the lock although no key is available. One glass inkwell with a brass top comes with the piece. This is a wonderful box to display on a bookshelf or desk top.
