This beautiful, Victorian era brass box would've held postage stamps on a late 19th century desk. It measures 3 1/8" long and 1.75" wide. It sits 1.25" high and opens to 3 slots on the interior where stamps would have been held. It depicts ornate, high relief repousse and chased brass cherubs on the surface. There is an illegible maker's mark on the bottom, but we are unable to identify the maker. It is quality made with a hefty weight, weighing 229 grams.
This antique box is in very good condition with a wonderfully aged, brass patina. There are tiny scattered areas of verdigris, mostly visible on the interior. This is a harder to find desktop accessory for your personal use, antique collection or display.
