Stamp case

English Silver Stamp Case. Birmingham 1903

 

An English Silver Stamp case in the form of an envelope. WWI soldiers carried these and collected the stamps of letters they received from home. Often attached to a watch chain. I love pieces that are irrelevant to our time but had meaning.Screen Shot 2016-02-21 at 8.35.06 PM
