This is a very charming sterling silver and glass stamp box to hold two different value stamps. The silver is in sarcophagus shape and the lid is of clear glass so the stamps can be easily seen. The lid opens with a spring-hinged lid which quickly snaps closed to protect the stamps. The interior of the main box is gilded and the two compartments have sloping bases so that the stamps can be easily slid up to be removed. On the bottom of the box there is a maker’s mark which is slightly rubbed, and the hallmarks for Birmingham, 1908. The lid also is hallmarked for the same date. This is a quality item to add to your collection of small pieces of silver. This should also appeal to those interested in stamp holders for these smaller stamps that were of a previous era, after the introduction of the ‘Penny Post’ in 1840. Maximum width 2.5 ins (6.3cm) x 1.5 ins (3.7cm) x 1.15 ins (2.8cm). Weight 56 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 348. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $36.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
