Antique Coromandel Writing Box


Antique Coromandel Writing Box

Coromandel Writing Box with brass stringing, thick brass edging, ornate initial plate and lock escutcheon.

Opening the box reveals brass corner brackets and further stringing around the gold tooled blue leather writing surface. The lower half has a sprung finger tab to allow opening to access the large satinwood lined storage space underneath. The top half of the writing surface is secured by a lock with its own key. Once unlocked this can be lifted to reveal another large storage space, but this one has a secret! Reaching underneath the section of the box which houses the inkwell and pen trays you should feel a small tab. When pressed this will cause the top section of the box to lift up, revealing two drawers with ribbon handles. To close this secret compartment there is a brass tab on each side which must be pressed in whilst pushing the whole section back down.

This writing box comes with a fully working bramah lock and tasselled key. The bramah lock mechanism is sprung so the key must be pressed into the lock whilst turning clockwise to unlock.
