Dealers note: This is one of the finest quality writing slopes on the market, absolutely littered with tiny details that only top flight boxes have, such as the triple brass lines of inlay, matched veneers (see either end of the box) Bramah lock and key, decorative brass corner insets, and in fabulous condition. A must for a serious collector!
