Antique English Carved Oak Bible Box Writing Slope Desk Book Slant Top Lectern
Antique English Carved Oak Bible Box Writing Slope Desk Book Lectern
~Direct from England~
~When on a buying trip to Europe, we never pass up one of these antique Bible boxes, they’re on the permanent “must find” list…and yet this is one of the first two we have found in YEARS (another one is listed separately)~
~All the features of a genuine antique treasure….lovely worn finish, battered and chipped edges, old handmade construction. JUST IMAGINE “the stories this Bible box could tell”!!~
~The slanted top is completely covered in carvings and features a lower raised edge to support books and/or papers for reading. And of course, the top opens to reveal ample interior storage.~
~THE SMALLER SIZE of this particular box makes it wonderful for use in today’s home, in the kitchen for cookbooks, in the study/home office for notebooks, and of course in a prayer room!~
~Note: these antique Bible boxes were used for storage and display of the family Bible back in the 17th, 18th, 19th centuries. The slanted top could have been used for reading an opened Bible and holding it while recording the family history of life/death/birth/marriages.~

I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email with any questions prior to making a purchase.
