Seller: verysunnyone (445) 100%, Location: London, Ships to: GB, Item: 401226628945 Victorian Metal Writing box bureau The makers plaque is very worn due to age and wear but I believe it is made by the well known Indian manufacturer Allibhoy Vallijee & Sons. This is in beautiful original unrestored condition. There is a metal rack inside the lid for storing letters which can be concealed (and used as a box) by cliping the metal panel in place. When thisis not clipped it place it would have been used as a writing surface It's a sturdy item and very well made with ornate brass handles The paint inside is original and quite beautiful. However if you wanted to remove it as it is flaking I think this would be quite easy to do When the box is closed if you press down very hard on it it can stick a bit but is fine if you don't do this Dimensions 43cm length 30cm width 19cm height I have taken lots of photos to show the condition and details. It has the usual age related scratches, wear etc but this is part of it's charm and history. There is some wear to the right corner of the lid pls see last photo but as you can see by the photos this is not very noticable.. It is heavy so wilL be sent via Hermes but buyers are welcome to collection from London SE8
