In very good condition - secret drawers

A very nice writing box, also called writing slope in England. The box is made of walnut which has a beautiful effect on the box.
The box is decorated with brass mounts and inlaid with a dark wood type. Beautiful central design on the box and lock.
The inside is also very beautiful, there is room for stamps, pens, ink jars, etc. The writing part is inlaid with green leather with gold imprint at the edges.
There is an empty space under the writing part for securities. If you pull up the piece of wood (see blue arrow in the photo) a wooden piece comes loose. Behind this piece are three secret drawers.
Height of the closed box is 17 cm, width is 49.5 cm, and depth is 26 cm when the box is closed. Weighs approx. 5 kg.
