Vyse, Sons and Company
According to a document held at the British Library, Vyse, Sons and Company sold "French sewn goods" (that is, corsets) circa 1884.
The "Received/£/for/VYSE SONS & CO" commercial overprint is difficult to find on Victorian Era stamps.
In the George V Era there is a similar overprint "[R/E/C/E/I/V/E/D] [V/S/&/CO/LD]" that I suspect also comes from Vyse.
