Amboyna Writing Box

Antique writing box veneered in stunning figured Amboyna attributed to Lund of London. With double-strung Ebony on the top and front, with campaign flush-fitting brass carry handles on each side, an ornate brass initial plate monogrammed "K H" and brass barrel Bramah lock protruding to the front.

The interior of this splendid amboyna writing box has been veneered with ebony framing its original burgundy velvet writing surface. The lower half of the writing surface lifts to reveal storage space underneath with cross ribbon backing for storing letters. The top half of the writing surface lifts as well to reveal a secondary storage space. The top edge of the open writing box has a solid Ebony pen tray flanked by leather-bound travelling inkwell and match holder & striker all contemporary to the fabulous antique writing slope.

This writing box comes with a fully working Bramah Lock and tasselled key. Bramah locks are spring-loaded, so they require the key to be pressed into the lock whilst turning clockwise to unlock.
