A handsome Victorian Moroccan leather letter box, with two slots to the top, one for "Answered" correspondence and the other for "Un Answered". The box is covered in black embossed leather, with brass mounted lock with the Royal Patent London. The interior is totally original, with the manufacturers mark J.W. & T Allen 18 - 22 Strand London. C1840

J.W Allan established as trunk and military outfitters J.W. Allen were one of the longest standing barrack and camp equipage makers in British history. We know that they were established in 1798 as they advertised their longevity on their catalogues and invoices at the turn of 1900.

J.W. & T. Allen started in the early 1840s. It is probable that John William and Thomas Allen were John's sons with the father's namesake using the addition of his second name to distinguish himself from his parent. An advert of 1857 uses both the names W & T Allen and in smaller print J.W. & T. Allen. By 1861 the company's name appears simply as J.W. Allen with Thomas removed.

A wonderful desk accessory, very good condition with minor wear commensurate with age.
