This Quintessential Penny Post Collection Clasp Purse is decorated with the original design of the world’s first ever 1st Class adhesive postage stamp, the Penny Black. The Penny Black Stamp was the world’s first adhesive postage stamp in circulation, issued way back on 1st May 1840 during the reign of Queen Victoria.
And if you want to impress your Mum with some Penny Black stamp trivia, you can tell her that 68 million Penny Black Stamps were issued with estimates that more than one million are still in existence.
Why are so many still available you may ask? Well the longevity of the iconic Penny Black Stamp is attributed to the fact that envelopes were rarely used in Victorian times as letters were folded and sealed with wax – the stamp being attached on the outside of the folded letter – hence the letter together with the stamp were both often kept and stored.
Combining British history with style and finesse, this beautiful purse available at the Post Office Shop can be used for daily use for carrying all your pennies, cash and cards when out and about. The timeless Penny Post clasp purse is an essential item for Mum’s everywhere and gives the contents of any handbag a stylish twist.
