Rare Silver Double Envelope Form Stamp Case Chester C.1914

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Woodbridge Antiques


A rare solid silver Double Stamp Case, in envelope form. The case is beautifully engraved with swirls and leaves and has an empty cartouch across one of the corners on the back of the case. Hinged at the top the stamp case opens and closes perfectly well and when open reveals two stamp compartments. Hallmarks are visible just beneath the lid for the Chester Assay Office with a slightly rubbed date mark (looks like 1914). The maker's mark is also clearly visible for the silversmith: Albert Ernest Jenkins. There is a loop on one side for attachment.
A rare item for a stamp case collector!
