Dear reader, I need your help: If you have watched Downton Abbey and spotted this writing slope in the series, please let me know and tell me series, episode and scene/room in the comment field below. Your assistance is much appreciated, as I couldn’t spot the writing slope so far*.
About the writing slope
The writing slope is from the Victorian Age. It is decorated on two sides with an inlay of mother-of-pearl and brass. I believe the writing slope to be made of mahogany and veneered with walnut wood.
Thanks for joining in my Downton Abbey Quest!

- *It’s not in: “Journey to the Highlands”, “The London Season” and Series 2, Ep. 1- 8. It is also not in “Christmas at Downton Abbey” (thanks, Yasha, for the assistance!).
- There are many boxes in Series 1, episodes 1-3, but none of them is the writing box in question. The writing slope is not in episodes 4-7 either.
