Unusual Franz Bergman Cold Painted Bronze Postage Stamp Box, Chick, circa 1900



A charming and very unusual novelty postage stamp box in the form of a chick, cast in bronze and cold painted. The hinged lid lifts to reveal a single postage stamp compartment with a sloped interior to easily slide out the stamps, a little catch keeps the box shut. The underside is where the mark can be found for Franz Bergman. A charming and rare example in excellent condition with wear commensurate with age. Measures: 2 3/4" x 2" x 2" tall. Item id 41300.
