Georgian Military Campaign Writing Slope

A good quality campaign writing slope or box dating from the 1800's.

This slope, when opened, could have been used as a reading lectern. There is a brass angle-stay (replaced) on the inside edge go keep the box in the open reading position but, the wooden book rest that would have been used on the outside edge is now missing, but it could be easily replaced. On the inside leading edge there are two brass candle plates for holding a pair of candle sconces.
