A late 18th century writing companion box of exceptional quality. Crafted in solid rosewood, with mahogany linings to drawers, it takes the form of a miniature tambour fronted desk. The fine tambour front rolls back to reveal an interior fitted with 2 small drawers and spaces for pens, etc, and ink bottles.
Fine reeding finishes the curved and front edges of the box.
Brass carrying handles and small knobs are all original. In addition to the excellent craftsmanship, this box has been treasured and for over 2 centuries and is in superb condition. Circa 1800
