Brass Bound Mahogany Desk Box

Brass Bound Mahogany Desk Box

A fine and well fitted box with the unusual feature of small brass candleholders that are set into fittings at the upper end of the writing slope. They lift out and are stored in small compartments next to the space for an inkwell and the pen tray.  The nicely tooled leather writing surface is modern.
