Black Forest stamp box
This dainty antique stamp box (circa 1910) from the Black Forest region has an exquisitely hand-carved edelweiss flower and leaves on the lid, all on a pokerwork background. The sides have geometric criss-cross carvings to give them interest.
It opens on a double hinge to reveal three slots for postage stamps.
The condition is excellent, with only hairline cracks on the base.
