Gerald Mathias has specialised in 19th century wooden and leather clad boxes for more than 30-years, particularly post letters boxes, dispatch despatch boxes, ballot boxes, stationary cabinets and other desktop items.
He spent 25 years trading at Chelsea’s well-known Antiquarius on Kings Road, London, where he gained a loyal band of discerning customers – both trade buyers and private collectors. More recently, 10 years ago, he relocated to The Old Cinema in Chiswick, West London, where he displays a selection of his current stock, together with many of his less expensive items.
All items for sale on this website and at The Old Cinema have been carefully chosen for their authenticity and ‘close to original’ condition. Current stock includes Georgian and Victorian wooden & leather boxes: i.e. country house post letter boxes, dispatch despatch boxes, jewellery boxes, medical boxes, writing boxes, as well as stationery cabinets, and desktop and library accessories.
