ANTIQUE ARTS AND CRAFTS DESK SET W BEAR STAMP - For Sale

ANTIQUE ARTS AND CRAFTS DESK SET W BEAR STAMP
Price: $450.00
Original antique Arts and Crafts brass desk set. Consists of a brass box, fitted with 3 rectangular boxes for holding writing paraphenalia, an octogonal box, that may be an ''extra'' and not originally part of the set and a stamp box, with compartments for two piles of stamps and a bear holding a punt or rowing. The main box is 8 X 4 5/8inches. It consists of scrolling openwork. There is a wooden shelf on two old wooden blocks inside, providing space to store documents etc.Above the shelf are 3 hand hammered, hand engraved rectangular boxes. Design is very much in the Aesthetic taste. They have large loops to house the hinges, the sticks of which are missing. The octogonal box has a different hand hammered and engraved design and is therefore perhaps not part of the original set.The small stamp box features a beautifully modelled bear as the handle. Great detail to fur and face. Here, the hinges are in good condition.Generally very good condition besides the minor bits missing from the hinges (replaceable even with a small stick/match).
