An ELEY cartridges samples box


#1

Hello,

I have this ELEY cartridges samples box from many years.

What is the date of this box ?








Thanks.

many thanks for showing this box - it shows the great value of the forum - sharing information with fellow collectors. I wish I could date it for you. All I can say is - obviously post 1874 (when Eley became Limited company) but I think about that date because of the ‘Boxer’ type cases - which must have become ‘solid-case’ about mid - 1870’s.
