Set of Portuguese Envelopes - Style 8
A set of 24 envelopes, manufactured in Portugal by the company "Pebece".
Pebece (pronounced PBC) was founded in Porto in 1923 by three directors: Polino, Bastos and Companhia and we believe these envelopes to date from between the 1930's -1950's.
The envelopes are 'Duck Egg Blue' in colour and lined with a printed tissue. There is some slight foxing to the envelopes and its possible that the gumming is no longer effective.
Each set is secured by a printed paper band and they are absolutely delightful!
Envelope size: 14cm x 9 cm
