About The Artist:

Just like today, portable writing devices were necessary in the late 19th century as more and more people traveled and needed to correspond either for business or personal reasons. Typical of this period, this box is veneered in an expensive wood, burr walnut, with beautiful grain, and fixed with elaborate brass decoration. These brass overlays are thick indicating a higher quality and a less mechanized process that that which was to come later in the century and beyond.
