A fine little stamp box adorned with a carved edelweiss flower. A lovely desk accessory. And while edelweiss is a love charm, a talisman to ward off evil, and has also been used in folk remedies for hundreds of years, your mileage may vary.
The box is held closed by means of its front section which lifts up to allow the lid to be raised. A clever and secure means of latching.
CONDITION is grand, the box is completely original and intact, and works as well today as the day it was made. Measures 2 3/8" x 3 1/8" and stands 1 1/8" tall.
In the High Alpine areas of Europe where edelweiss grows high on rocky crags and ledges, it is often gathered by young men for their sweethearts which can be a dangerous pursuit. But here all the work is done for you… a lovely Edelweiss for your sweetheart, no hiking, climbing or mountaineering skills required. Enjoy!
