Hongkong Post today (December 6) announced the launch of Vintage Crystal Posting Box Sets for sale at its online shopping mall ShopThruPost (www.shopthrupost.hk) and at the 46 PostShop outlets while stock lasts.
Each box set contains three crystal posting boxes and the design of the boxes is based on three local posting boxes from the colonial era, which come in three distinct styles - pillar-type, wall-type and oval-shaped. While superb craftsmanship brings the minute features of each posting box to life, the set also encapsulates the precious collective memory of all Hong Kong citizens, as well as the history of Hongkong Post for more than 170 years. At HK$488, the exquisite set is both an ideal gift for your loved ones and a delightful collection item.
To make the set into a unique and personalised treasure, you can also choose to engrave a personalised message on the crystal base for only HK$650, exclusively at ShopThruPost (www.shopthrupost.hk). Your designated text can be engraved in maximum of two rows with 30 letters or 18 Chinese words on each row. Place your order by December 19 and the set will be posted by February 8, 2013 to meet the gift-giving Lunar New Year period.
In addition, with each purchase of two or more Vintage Crystal Posting Box Sets from ShopThruPost (www.shopthrupost.hk) from now till January 3, 2013, customers can get a complimentary copy of the "History of Posting Boxes in Hong Kong" booklet (normal sale price $40) while stock lasts. This beautifully printed booklet charts the evolution of local posting boxes from the Victorian era up to the present day with photographs and illustrations.
