    Description

    Lot of Seven Early 1900s Christmas Candy Boxes From a much simpler time come seven original, nostalgic cardboard boxes that once upon a time held delicious Christmas candies or treats that we are sure were a joy to receive. First is an interesting bell-shaped box with a string hanger, possibly made to hang on the tree. The front shows Santa himself placing gifts from his sleigh onto a Christmas tree. The verso shows the Liberty Bell with a New Year's poem. Next is another box picturing Santa on all four sides stating, "A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" on one with a string carrying handle. Santa also appears on the third box along with children hanging up their stockings by the fireplace. There are two identical items portraying cute young children looking at the Christmas tree on one side and ringing in the New Year on the other with string carrying handles. Next is a box decorated with a cameo-style ladies portrait and flowers, again with a string handle. The last box is very attractive with gold embossing surrounding two fine period-style portraits of young ladies. This one has a patent date of June 30, 1874. All boxes are folded flat and are generally in very fine condition. Sizes range from 4.5" x 7.25" up to about 5.25" x 9.5".

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
