Formerly associated with Watson, Charles Thomae founded a separate company in 1920 and lent his personal mark to be used as a trade symbol for the new operation. That "T over C" and the word "Sterling" are located on the rim of this stamp box. The item is round, with a diameter of 1 7/8" and a height of 1 1/8". It is solid silver and weighs approximately 1.6 T. oz. The interior has a central spindle for holding a roll of stamps, while the side and lid each has a matching slit through which to feed the end of the end of the roll. The interior retains some of an original gold wash. The piece is plain save for a lined pattern on the lid. This suggests 1930's Deco inspiration. There is a rectangular reserve which is monogrammed "FGS" in block lettering. The piece is in excellent condition. The lid detail shows a little softening from polishing and that is the only sign of use. There are no dents or dings, and the hinge is tight and works perfectly.
