Victorian Upside Down Birds Eye Maple and Tiger Oak Writing Slope Box. This slope is one of the most unique you will ever find. It is stunning and functional - "breaks all the rules" but it works and works well! Birds eye maple and tiger oak are two woods that you would never expect them to be in the same piece they are just so different.
And yet here they are side by side setting each other off perfectly. The lock is upside down for the simple reason that the writing slope is upside down and opens with the big side on top. The writing surface is an antique red and goes beautifully with woods.
Box has a few chips and scratches and a small hole on writing surface. If you want a real treasure, this is it. See all pictures carefully, glad to answer any questions you may have.
