This beautiful necklace features a sterling silver stamp case on a sterling silver bead chain. The stamp case has swirl floral engraving and is hallmarked Chester c1909 with the makers mark Albert Ernest Jenkins and is in excellent condition. A totally unique and stunning necklace.

Stamps were expensive items and therefore were stored in special boxes or cases. Small stamp cases were designed to hold just a few stamps and the simplest were of decorated cardboard, while the more elaborate were made of precious metals. Many had small rings attached so they could be suspended from a watch chain or necklace. Some were so elaborately adorned that they were as much items of jewellery as utilitarian objects.

The stamp case measures 2.5cm x 2cm. The total length of the chain is 55cm.
