Description:
Beautiful antique wood writing box with compartments for storing pens, erasers, and other desk items and one covered slot in the middle that can be lifted up for storage beneath. Box has Ink stains on the inside from old fountain pens and ink wells that used to be kept inside. Box hinges in the back. Front has a key slot that once locked, but no longer has a key. A lovely piece for a writing desk or as decoration on a shelf. Could also be used to store jewelry, photographs, or other collections of small objects.

Measurements:
18 1/4" long x 9" wide x 7 1/2" tall

Condition:
Writing box is in good working order. The hinges are sturdy and the lid opens and closes as intended. Lots of vintage wear to the wood gives this piece charm. The wood has a lovely patina. Top of wood box has two cracks as shown in the images. Cracks of this type are very common on antique boxes due to the way wood expands and contracts over time. Lots of scuffs and scratches on the wood consistent with the look of a well loved antique. Inside has some ink stains as shown in the images. The compartment in the middle front of the box with a pen holder top gets a little sticky sometimes when I try to lift it out.
