A rack inside the lid can be made to spring forward for easy access to the stationery. In front there is a pen with a bone handle and bone page turner. Below, a removable caddy holds a pen tray and a matching set comprising an ink bottle and a 'light' box for matches. The horizontal white boards in front can be used with a lead pencil or felt tipped pen, and then easily rubbed out with an eraser or damp cloth. The writing surface with flaps covering two compartments for storage is situated below. All the metal fittings are gilded, and the keyhole of the Bramah lock is moved to the right to open the box. It is fully locked when the key is inserted and turned anti clockwise.
