Probably sheridon revival not sheridon (so victorian not georgian) In fantastic condition with a working lock and key. Lift up lid to reveal stationary slots and fall down front that reveals two deco handled draws and a sprung tray that slides out containing a pen tray and an ink well. The drop down front can then be unfolded further to reveal the writing slope. There are slots to put pens and others to put notes or calender.
Its size is very practical at 34 x 19 x 23 cm closed and 34 x 39 x 59 cm open. Its only flaw is that to lock you have to push down on the lid. Please feel free to ask questions.And for those new to writing slopes --.... WRITING SLOPES I restore many different types of boxes for the artist /creator. They are all well earnt and are marks of honour! In others i try to make the slopes as close to there original condition as possable.
I try to restore all of these slopes to work well for there new owners and to be a companion for them on their journey of creation. I also try to discribe the slopes personality! Long ago fast travel or communication meant that the horses were well feed or the the wind was in the right direction.
In that time empires spanned the world and people born in places, where far away was the next village, moved to the over side of the planet or toured the massiveness of europe or moved to the city. And most people were stangers in a strange land, both literaly and figerativly. At those times the writing slopes were designed and built by the craftsmen of the time to link you to the world and to home , wherever you found yourself, you could go to your slope prepare your pens, paper and ink and communicate.
For many it was that one constant , that rock to cling to. They were designed for that. See the different crafts and the different purposes and stories they tell.
Find one to fit you and give it new purpose. Many generations have done so before you. The item "Large sheridon mahogany stationary box / writing slope with it all" is in sale since Saturday, March 6, 2021.
