Antique Writing Box with secret compartment


Antique Writing Box with secret compartment

Rosewood Writing Box with ornate symmetrical brass borders on the top and front, with a vacant initial plate and escutcheon.

The interior has a replaced gold tooled green leather writing surface with storage compartments underneath. The lower half has two brass locking tabs which keep the surface secure. The top half has a larger storage area which houses two secret drawers! These drawers can be accessed by removing the top right hand inkwell and pressing on the lower right hand corner of its compartment. This will cause a false wall to spring forward revealing the secret drawers.

This writing box comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key. The key must be turned clockwise to unlock.
