Fancy Stamp Boxes

Fancy Stamp Boxes

Stamp box designs from various postcard publishers and photographic paper manufacturers. Note that during the First World War, and for some years following, some designs, such as the Martin J. Ridley example below, were used to obliterate or disguise the "Printed in Germany", "Printed in Saxony", or similar, often printed in the stamp box, as it was thought the original notices might adversely affect sales. For help with dating stamp boxes see here.
