Victorian writing

IMAG0316

While in a lovely antiques shop recently I came across this beautiful old Victorian writing case, complete with ink pots and secret compartments (perhaps for unfinished manuscripts, or  illicit letters…?) At nearly £400 I wasn’t tempted to buy it I have to admit, but it did make me think of writing a novel with a quill pen by candle light (or some other romanticised image of a Victorian writer). It could equally as likely have been used by an Ebenezer Scrooge type character to write reports and count his money. Who knows?
