Antique Edwardian pink guilloché silver gilt stampbox from Asprey, circa 1910
1 in stock
Do you know what this is?
The writing desk of an Edwardian lady had various aids to her tasks on it, including a receptacle for stamps. If she was wealthy, it might be as charming as this silver gilt and guilloché enamel one from Asprey.
It’s in the form of a travel trunk on a porter’s trolley – the wheel moves, adding to the appeal.
Asprey was a leading London jewellery house for generations and survives to this day.
Stamps are now almost extinct, so I can see this being repurposed as a holder for a special jewel or some other small treasure.
