Description
A delightful piece of George V silver desk ware. This is a weighted stamp or envelope moistener. In this elegant age, it was considered rather vulgar to lick one's stamps or envelopes. Therefore this charming device came into being. The main silver body is weighted for stability and to use as a paperweight. The centre is inset with a natural sponge, which is then soaked in water and ready for use. A lovely item to dress a desk, that retains a practical use. Hallmarks:- Softening but readable Maker:- Napper & Davenport
