silver stamp case - USA


R. Blackinton & Co silver roll stamp case stamp cases began to be produced toward the end of XIX century using gold, silver and wood. Some of the earliest British stamp boxes date from the 1880s, when the silver stamp case came into regular production.
This American silver stamp case of cylindrical shape is a dispenser of stamps in roll. It was made by R. Blackinton & Co, North Attleboro, Massachussets at the beginning of the 20th century.
R. Blackinton & Co was founded in 1862 and its original trademark was used until c. 1900. Most of its production consisted of silver and gold novelties, flatware, holloware and dresserware.
The stamp case is 1 1/8 in. wide (cm. 3) and was bought from an US dealer through the Internet.
