Secrets:
This is Peter's first Small Treasure Jest with two lids. The papa and pup have just taken over delivery of the morning post. The postman's hat (ER. Elizabeth Regina) is based on the hat that Peter's father wore when he worked for the Royal Mail. Peter heard many a story of his father's bravery in delivering Her Majesty's mail. However, this poor postman has failed to continue on his round. Amongst the scattered and chewed letters is one addressed to Sherman, R&D department, Wimberley Mills (one of Martin's residential carvers) and another to President Clinton, White House, Washington. And are those letters to Monica Lewinsky, Santa at the North Pole, Lucy Genic (for hallucinogenic), and Reader's Digest? Peter's mouse lurks under the mailbag with his own fan mail. In Edition 1, Peter has included references to the week's news; there was a change to UK law that will allow a dog with a passport to travel abroad without quarantine restrictions. The key and registration number belong to Peter's long awaited new car, a Puma. The Infinity Version contains Winston Churchill, known as the bulldog. Hallmarks include ©, star, HBC logo, ed.#, and PC.

Part of a beautiful collection purchased from a former collector who never displayed her collection, this box has been carefully checked and is in perfect condition with the original box.  The outer green box shows some slight age and storage wear. ~ Jules
