I have a GORGEOUS 5 piece fine leather desk set with hand carved jade inserts for sale by C.F. RUMPP & SONS.

C.F. RUMPP & SONS was a fine leather dealer based in Philadelphia Pennsylvania from the mid 1800s to 1959.

They were a major business in a 7 story limestone building which was unfortunately demolished ten years later in 1969.

The final pictures of this ad shows an advertisement for RUMP & SONS as well as a picture of their building which is preserved in the Library of Congress.

I believe this set to be circa 1920s.

The set includes a document holder, an index filer an ink blotter and a leather bound book with heavy pages I believe was used to protect against ink overflow from fountain pens.

The calendar with inserts reads "C.F. RUMPP & SONS PERPETUAL CALENDAR--COPYRIGHTED 1895"

The leather is all in good condition for it's age with some staining and fading. The interior of the boxes are lined with moray taffeta.

Another amazing feature is that the set is that all 5 pieces have hand carved JADE inserts in them, further underlining their quality.

GREAT FOR YOUR PERSONAL DESK SET TO HAVE ON DISPLAY FOR A CONVERSATION PIECE!

Priced to go at $485 for the set!!
