Antique Sterling Silver Enamel Engraved Stamp Case 1891 New York Ny For Sale
I have been buying estate jewelry forever and now it`s your chance to purchase a great deal. I would rather offer it to the public then scrap any of my unique items. I do not like a reserve and start all of my jewelry at $9.99 no matter how much it`s worth.
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.
