rohlfsaCurrently being offered on a BuyItNow basis on the eBay website is this Charles Rohlfs, Arts & Crafts, oak stamp box.
(Item No.: 252118221885)

The asking price is US $1,495. For potential UK buyers there is also quite a cost of postage plus the likelihood of being charged 20% VAT on import.

Is this the highest price at which a wooden stamp box has been offered? But has quality ever been cheap? Examples of Rohlfs’ work are to be found in many American museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
