We realize mermaids and pirates may seem a little odd even for us, but since we got our start in the Steampunk community it actually makes perfect sense.

This is a replica of a traditional Stamp Box. The world's first postage stamp was issued in Great Britain in 1840. In those days, sending a letter was something special, and stamps were expensive, so special boxes like this were created to hold them.
