Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
Graphics and typography are one of our collective interests. Originally used as a teaching tool, the wooden box with paper label intact contains various word, letter, and picture rubber stamps. Words can be spelled with the capital and lower case alpha/numerical/punctuation stamps. Complete sentences can also be created from the word stamps. Cleverly illustrated images include Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, an airplane, camel, Santa, ... and many more. The set shows use with ink staining, a scratch or two on the wood. One of the metal closures is tight but all elements still function as intended. Some of the stamps originally included may be missing; this Depression Era collection is cute, functional, and entertaining- just add an ink pad! Directions and a metal work surface for composition are stored inside under the stamp storage tray.
