Antique Victorian Era Writer's Folio, Blotter, Brief Case, Gold Embossed Leather. All items and photos are the express property of Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. No reproduction without prior written consent.We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. Found in France, a mid to late 1800s lockable brief or paper folio. Sized to hold important documents, or stationery and envelopes. Perhaps a traveler's diary and blotter. The inside lining is a white surface very suitable to use as a writing surface.
Based on the width of the spine, it would have been able to hold 1/2 of documents. Likely for personal rather than scribe's or legal use, an accessory for one's bedroom, or travel. Full measurements note on the photos.
It has a lockable clasp but we have never had a key for it. Very good condition for age and type. Seems like split leather over card, and the elegant gold embossment and decorative style put it squarely to mid-1800s. This one has use and age, as you can see, yet makes a superb prop, or decorative desktop folio alongside your inkwell collection. We've used it as a prop in photos of antique ink wells over the decades.The old written letters shown are not included - just for show, ambiance. We're easy to deal with.
