A fine quality late 19th Stationary Box/Desk Organiser. Made in oak, it features a sloping front that opens to reveal a letter/paper rack, pen tray, ink bottle, and a removable white slate board. The single drawer with its original brass handle contains a label: "Supplied by Jas. Bragg, Stationer and Bookseller, 105 &106 Broad St, Reading". Bragg is recorded in the Reading Street Directory for 1888 at this address. Well constructed, with rounded edges and a great shape, this box is in excellent condition. The catch securing the opening doors is missing, as is the bottom strip of the slate frame. Circa 1890
