Naturally, your goal in life is to rub less. Rubbing - who needs it, right? Proudly state your dislike of rubbing with this wonderful SET OF 2 fab copper printer's blocks from the 1920's.
Beautiful coppery green/brown/bronze patinas and fun ad copy add up to a great vintage collection. Lovely display of INDUSTRIAL DECOR
Rub-Less Washing Powder! Manufactured in Los Angeles (where rubbing is not encouraged, my goodness me, no!).
Nifty art of a washerwoman's arm holding an antique-style washboard, plus lots of cool details and text.
Copper letterpress on two HEFTY chunks of antique oak. See pics for condition: worn and aged, but the type is still crisp. Stains on the wood blocks, but no deterioration. Note: the printed example I included (the arm and washboard in blue) was done from a different block, but apart from the layout, is essentially the same as the art on this set.
Measurements: all approx. 1' thick
5" X 5"
4-1/2" X 3"
