Beautiful Regency Rosewood Writing Slope

WALPOLES
A plain but very smart writing slope of exceptional quality.
Beautifully grained Rosewood, the interior panels banded with Kingwood. Inside are four concealed drawers behind a mahogany strip beneath the writing implements section, two Sheffield Plate lidded inkwells and a green stained grained leather writing surface. The hinges to the interior are finished with gold tinted lacquer and secured with bright polished steel screws.
The lock is as exceptional as the box it secures. Running almost the entire width of the case it features five securing points operated simultaneously. A steel bar with the five loops is fitted to the lid which engages with the brass plate and lock when shut. This lock is operated by a key of an individual design and action. The barrel is made with two holes, the second must be engaged mid way when turning the key to lock, and disengaged when at the same point when opening. English circa 1830.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road. Please be aware that this shop is too small to show all of the stock on the website and that you should make an enquiry before your journey to ensure that the item in question is there for you to see. We are open every day, with the exception of Sundays, between the hours of 10 a.m. & 4 p.m., (Saturday 7.00 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
