Marks on small Case

Postby jacksonsvl19l » Sun Dec 27, 2015 11:07 pm

Hello again everyone. I just picked up this small case, what I'm thinking is a stamp case.
It is marked sterling on the inside on one end, and on the other is 2 marks I can't figure out.
Looks to me like some kind of animal, perhaps a monkey, on top of what looks like a script F in a lozenge.
Measures 2 1/2 inches by 1 3/4 inches. 31.5 grams.

As always, any help is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,

Rather than a stamp case, I believe you have the successor to a vesta case...being a match book case/cover. The makers mark looks to me to be that of Lebolt & Co of Chicago but you may wish for confirmation from someone who is better versed in US makers.

In the meantime have a look Lebolts's mark here and see what you think;

Thank you much. I do believe you are correct about Lebolt & Co of Chicago. Happy Holidays.
