Set of 9 Portuguese Envelope Boxes

£65.00

A set of 9 boxes originally used to hold 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 boxes date from between the 1930's -1950's.

The cardboard boxes are secured with staples to the edges and have a patterned paper stuck to one side (originally corresponding to the envelopes they held) They are a bit battered and showing their age but would look great stacked on a shelf, maybe holding some paper ephemera.

Size of each box: 28cm x 14.5cm x height 10cm
