We are excited to offer this incredibly rare stamp box of Tiffany Studios Bronze. In the Victorian and Edwardian era it was common that affluent households used these boxes to store their stamps. This would have adorned a well "dressed" desk in a house of means. This box is later than the Victorian era, but retains all the romance of art in use.
Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young founded the now world-renowned Tiffany & Co. in the heart of New York City. Despite the fact that America was in a deep economic recession, the company thrived, selling quality merchandise imported from India, Europe and the Orient.
In 1847, the company began retailing the silver products that would eventually become their signature.
This is an extremely rare Tiffany Studios bronze dresser box dating from the early 20th century. It remains in exceptional condition and features a demure yet elegant design.
Tiffany Studios mainly was responsible for manufacturing some of the world's finest stained glass from 1878 to 1933. The Studio mainly produced the windows and lamps for which it so famous today, but occasionally manufactured unique items like this lovely bronze box.
There is a simple, geometric pattern carved into the top, front, back and sides of the box. The hinged lid opens to reveal a removable tray with three convex reservoirs where stamps would have been stored.
A hallmark stamped onto the underside of the box reads "Tiffany Studios, New York" and bears the design number "1797". This piece dates to the 1910s.
It bears a rich, marbled patina throughout with some minor verdigris on the interior. Overall, this darling little box remains in fantastic antique condition.
