LOVELY SET OF LARGE WOODEN LETTERPRESS BLOCKS
H: 25.5cm (10.04in)
W: 16.5cm (6.50in)
D: 2.4cm (0.94in)
Period: First quarter 20th Century
These five lovely, large carved wooden letterpress printing blocks spell out 'beads' in stylish Art Nouveau-esque typography.
In the second photo you'll see a standard sized business card placed into shot to provide a sense of scale - each letter measures around 25.5cm high and is 16.5cm wide so much larger than the norm and the years of contact with ink have left the wooden letters with a dark, rich colouring.
Excepting for a few small scuffs/nicks to the sides the blocks are in good condition and stand on end relatively happily for display purposes.
Each letter is roughly 25.5cm high, 16.5cm wide and 2.4cm deep.
