This is a London Old Admiralty British mail bag. What a great piece of British history. We are not sure of the age of this piece, but haven’t seen another one like it.
This piece is in good vintage condition, but does have some staining. We haven’t washed or ironed it as we will leave that to you. Please examine the photos to see the colors and quality of this piece.
This piece measures approximately 16″ by 22.5″.
The Admiralty buildings was completed in 1726 and sits in the heart of London between Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade. It is said Winston Churchill walked these halls. Today it is officially known as the Ripley Building. It is thought to be the first ‘purpose built’ official building in Britain. Just a little bit of history for you to know about where this piece was utilized.
