It's really a beautiful companion for any writer and the Austen fan in me also loves the old school feel of using it. I am pretty much in awe of the craftsmanship, it's a wonderful piece of woodwork and I cannot wait to take it travelling with me.
I bought this for my husband. He loves it!
Waited over a month to get it, but glad I did. Good quality use it to store a pen and paper ready to go. Have the eye in it as well, thank you!
I bought my writing box as a "second" and to be honest it just has minor fails like a bit of glue on the logo and the linen not glued to the wood, but perfectly functional and beautiful to admire.
I have been using it all around the house for my journaling because I can carry all my bits and journal wherever I want very comfortably
President Kennedy joked when a group of Nobel laureates came to the White House for a meal saying this was the most distinguished gathering since Thomas Jefferson dined alone. The Writing Box -- a revival of Jefferson's design -- tells you what the President was talking about.
This is a wonderful demonstration of craft. Using walnut for the wood was inspired.
The Writing Box
Galen's Writing Box is a finely crafted, furniture-finished and very useful way to carry notebooks, paper, pens and other accessories. It is also a comfortable, practical writing desk with its top propped open. I have the leather carrying strap, which fits snugly around the box and makes it very easy to carry. I love the workmanship, the attention to detail, and the utility of the Writing Box. I think other writers would thoroughly enjoy using it as much as I do. Galen Leather is very easy to deal with, and ships the box securely packed inside a very sturdy box that in turn is well-packed to get through the mails. Mine arrived promptly and intact. I will look at other items Galen sells because of the quality of their work and the ease of doing business with them.
I bought this to declutter my desk and it is great. Really beautiful addition to my every day space. Be sure you know how small it is. I was aware but can see folks being disappointed if they don’t look carefully at the measurements.
My writing box was purchased as a gift to me however when I received it, it was broken. The hinges hadn't been installed correctly and so the top and bottom didn't line up. Also the latch in the front had snapped due to the box not being aligned properly. I contacted Galen Leather immediately however no one answered me for almost two weeks. They did eventually get back to me after I sent numerous emails. It was, admittedly, very frustrating in the beginning however they did finally tell me that yes, it was a quality control error and they sent me a beautiful new box. They even expedited the shipping so it only took 4 days to receive instead of the possible 2 months. I was very appreciative that they did take the time to get back to me. I think they might want to re-look at their customer service contact person but I understand everyone has been quite busy lately. I love the products that the company makes but the time difference can make it difficult when there is a problem. So, while I was frustrated at the beginning, I ended up with a gorgeous product that I love and would purchase again. Thanks Galen Leather for making it right with me.
