Mahogany Desk-Top Security Box

hover over image to zoom

A fine drop-front desk-top box made to keep sensitive papers and ledgers secure and yet to hand; the flap secured by a snap-shut Hobb's & Co. lock and with a full width brass hinge. Within is a single shelf to accommodate a book.

 

This case is finished all-round, the back with line detailing to match that around the flap. The mahogany used is well chosen and celebrates the grain; a knot chosen to naturally decorate the top. The craftsmanship is also shown-off by exposing the dove-tail joints and polishing every surface, (with the exception of the base), something of a precursor to the decorative functionality promoted by the Cotswold Movement into the 20th century.
