"Parkins & Gotto" Victorian book slide, with gothic style uprights. Veneered in coromandel. Marked for "Parkins and Gotto" one of the finest makers of boxes and ephemera in the Victorian era. The end stops are marked "Betjamen" and "Patent 13984" these marks refer to the elasticated slide movement inside the base. Usually these do not work but this is fully working.
