RARE ANTIQUE ROSEWOOD CARVED BOOK FORM FILE BOX, VICTORIAN LIBRARY /OFFICE.

RARE ANTIQUE ROSEWOOD CARVED BOOK FORM FILE BOX, VICTORIAN LIBRARY /OFFICE.

Item: Superb Victorian Book-Form Carved Stationary Box.

Description: An extremely unusual and particularly fine example in solid rosewood and dating to c1890. The box is crafted to resemble a large book. The 'spine' with gentle curve is hinged, opening a full 180 degrees to reveal the interior. The front edge is reed carved to look like the 'pages'. Lovely grain, colour and patina, and super quality throughout. Would take A4, making this ideal for files, stationary, envelopes and letter writing items. Never seen one like it.

Measurements: Width 320mm. Depth 105mm. Height 450mm.

Condition Report: Superb throughout with only minor chips/ scuffs. Lock present but no key.
