ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

Crocodile dispatch box by Asprey

Asprey, London: a time warp piece in the form of a massive Victorian crocodile-hide dispatch box or case, the top of the box with a recessed brass handle and embossed monogram with coronet, the Chubb patented lock with original key present. The interior, also lined with crocodile and the lid with a grid of crocodile bandings for small notes and memoranda and stamped ASPREY LONDON.

The piece is in such pristine condition due to it being cased in a hard leather cover, and rarely - if ever - used.

Size: 18 x 12 x 7 inches (46 x 30 x 18 cms).

(In lower image, shown with Ref 5906)

A gentleman’s writing case of fine quality, the exterior in dark, glossy crocodile hide, the interior with lift-out writing pad, and green long-grained leather dividers to the inside of the lid, fixed with a silver clasp, perfect for storing letters, stamps and instruments for correspondence.

All of the fittings, locks and clasps in Sterling silver and bearing London hallmarks for 1925.

Size: 14 x 11 x 4 inches (36 x 28 x 10 cms).
