What a cool find! A Gorgeous
Antique Stamp Case – Handcrafted in solid Sterling Silver the miniature case is
in the shape of an envelope. It has an engraved and enameled postage stamp in
the upper right corner and an enamel postage mark with “NEW YORK, N.Y.”, 1, 5
PM, and 91 for January 1st, 1891. The back has an enamel “Received”
mark of “1.1.91 RECD” also for New Year’s Day, January 1st, 1891.
The face has been hand engraved beautifully with “Miss. V. L. Parker 106 W. 34
St. N.Y. City”. The top opens to reveal the inside compartment. Inside the flap
the case is Hallmarked “STERLING” and “PAT.JUNE 24.90” for June 1890. The
inside of the face of the miniature box is stamped with a number “21”. The box
measures just over 1” (2 mm) tall by 1-1/4” (32 mm) wide and 3/16” (5 mm)
thick. The overall condition is very good. There is some minor wear on the
enamelwork which is to be expected with a piece of this age. There is only one,
small pin point depression on the back; please see photos. The lid opens and
shuts well, with good spring. The hinge is nice and tight. There is a light
patina that can be polished if desired. Please see the photos as they do a much
better job of describing the piece than I can do. The total weight is 11 grams.
Add this rare find to your collection today.
