Antique New Zealand Native Timber Writing Slope - Kauri $sold
larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify
A unique writing slope - usually these slopes are English but this is a Rare NZ Colonial Writing box crafted in Native timbers and is the only one like it that we've ever had. It was obviously custom made for someone with an initial 'L'. 
It features simple but elegant crossbanded inlay borders and diamond key escutcheon with a marquetry  'L' emblem in the Centre top. Inside, the lids, along with the quaint little hidden drawers fronts, display the outstanding grain of mottled Kauri. 
The felt writing surface has recently been refurbished.  

Circa 1890

45 x 25 x 13
