This neat little Chinese motif stamp box is fashioned from sheet brass with applied cast bronze embellishments and is offered here with two period penned notations each carefully trimmed to fit the delicate hinged container. The brown ink notations advise: This stamp box was bought in the Chinese settlement in Helena Mont. by Dorr F. Diefendorf. 1892 and This Penny traveled 7000 Miles through the West in the Pocket of Door F. Diefendorf. 1892 . Our initial research found that Door F. Diefendorf was born in 1875 in New York and became a prominent Methodist Pastor listed in Who Was Who in America as well as Who’s Who among North American Authors. Some additional research may shed light on Rev. Diefendorf’s travels in the American West, particularly what took him to the Chinese settlement in Helena, Montana. A neat piece of Americana with potential interest for the early Western Rail Road enthusiast. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
