Vintage Writing Box



This is a sweet vintage writing box. It is small, perhaps it was used as a portable travel writing slope. Made from wood and covered in leather it opens up to reveal a writing blotter, internal space, a filing pocket and a place for pens and ink. There is an old ink pen and three nibs. This is vintage conditions, please see condition report below.

The lid has been turned around at some point as the original hinge edge has worn. There are rips to the leather both on the lid and internally. The file pocket is missing its front piece. This is however a very sweet writing box which has been well used and loved. All its imperfections add to its story and gives it, its worn patina. Please see pictures as these will show you the condition
