Antique Victorian Walnut Stationery Box - 4 Letter Racks, Drawer+ Inkwells & Key For Sale
ANTIQUE VICTORIAN WALNUT STATIONERY BOX - 4 LETTER RACKS, DRAWER+ INKWELLS & KEY
Antiques can really change the look and feel of a room.
In the same way that a manor house or castlewe visit seems to bringthe past to lifealovely old treasurebrought intoour home creates awonderful period atmosphere.
The problem is, we don't all have space for asuit of armouror roll top bureau...well now, we can help!
For your consideration today we have a Victorian wooden stationery box.
This box literally sits apart frommodern piecesin its style, quality and aged appearance to make it feel like a Victorian visitor to your desk top!
On the outside it could be called unassuming with a simple angled front and plain sides yet the grain and patina of the wood is so detailed and interesting that people tend tobe drawn to this box, even from across a room.
Open it up and the intrigue continues as we're treated to four individual letter racks, a pair of inkwells and both a covered and open pen nook.
The wood may be a little stained with ink and the wells may show wear/corrosion but it's these things which give the box its character and appeal.
Of course every good box holds a surprise and this one's is a drawer at the very base which only slides when the doors are open.
Size wise this box is 33cm high by32cm wide and21.5cm deep - making it perfect as a desk top or side table companion.
We have mentioned the little indications of use, these can be added to with broken letter ties to the inside of the left door, some pencil graffiti under the covered pen nook and a little wear to the wood/metalin places.
So this piece definitely wears its history on its face but then that's one of the reasons why it looks so darn beautiful!
The last thing to mention is that the box does come with its key however the reciever lock part is missing and the key hole section is a little sloppy to lock/unlock thus the key is really more for show.
So there we have it, a real piece of antique furniture nearly anyone can fit intotheir home!
And while this box will bring a whole new feel to your space and be admired by friends and family alike the best part is, it's also really useful and sure to bring a smile to your face next time you need to draft a letter or stash away some paper work.
