Lot Number 9

A writing slope hinged lid with black leather writing surface with gilded details with brass mounts, secret compartment opening to reveal two draws with key. Condition - The leather writing surface is predominantly still adhered to the box, there is one large tear (5 cm) and two smaller tears and the leather is starting to lift to one side. There are quite a few surface scratches to the box and to the brass mounts also some veneer loss to the rear of the box. the hinges seem good, the lock still functions but the lid catches slightly when opening and closing. Estimate 30 - 50
