Duveen, Henry (1854 - 1919)
- Post Office owner and Stamp collector
Henry Duveen was a partner in the firm of Duveen Brothers, Art Dealers, London and New York. He was also a stamp collector and specialised in the countries of Mauritius and Switzerland.
Duveen bought an unused two pence Post Office in 1898 (which had a light blue mark on it). The following year he bought the Adam ball envelope. When Avery's unused one penny and two pence in fine condition came up for sale in 1909, Duveen purchased them both, paying in part by exchanging the two Post Office he already possessed.
