Vintage Letterpress Wood Type Block Letters 48 pieces and Wooden Tray / Organizer
Product Description: A Vintage Wooden Letterpress Printing Blocks and a Wooden Organizer. With this 48 piece collection, there are a combination of letters with many duplicates. Also included is the (&) symbol and (3) punctuation marks; exclamation, period and comma.
Condition: Used. Letters are in vintage good condition. The tray is fair condition.
Since this collection is previously used, the surface on most all of the letter blocks are black. All letters are complete with the exception of "G". "G is missing". The wooden tray/organizer is a two piece (top and bottom base) which has a split in the back base and small splits and nail holes visible in the front. It doesn't appear to be your typical printer tray or it may have been reworked, therefore it is being identified here as an organizer, possibly handmade, no handle. It is a good usable tray/organizer with surface patina that will keep the letters well organized.
1 1/2" Tall x 1 1/8" W (back of block only) on most letters with the exception of the punctuation mark blocks which are 1/2" W.
