This is a nice Tiffany Studios gilt bronze stamp box in the Venetian pattern, made in the form of an Italian Renaissance cassone with raised figural and geometric decoration. The Venetian pattern is best recognized for the line of ermines along the base of the piece. I believe this piece was polished at one time and now has a mellow attractive finish. The stamp box with latch lift and removable interior section with three divisions for stamps. Marked Tiffany Studios New York 1645 on the underside. Approximately 1-1/2"H x 4"W x 2"D. Circa 1905.

Those of you who have purchased from me before know that I am very picky about condition. I will try to note anything of significance in the description. However, please check the photos carefully---as they say `a picture is worth a thousand words' We will help arrange shipping for you; our experience with large or small has been excellent. We do offer an easy layaway program. Usually 20% down, with the remaining term somewhat negotiable. Please email us before you buy if you would like to discuss layaway terms.
