Description

This listing is for 1 letter, you pick choice from list below and put desired letter in message line.
Note that I do not have the entire alphabet but only ones shown in these photos. UPDATE: Only one A left, has some aging on bottom edge, reddish rust like stain. Check ***** list below as I will eliminate a letter when sold out. This listing is for 1 letter, Pick 1 from letters A (1 described above) B, D, E, F, O, S, and X. These letters are 2 1/16" tall and are the ones in this listing. (E, G, J, L, O, S and U are in another listing.) PLUS I do have a large D and M in another listing plus numbers also! The letter O is the number zero from the numbers listing. You can search "metal numbers" in my shop to see it. It is the same size as the letters. I also have some smaller 1 1/2" numbers in this silver hue, same font. CONVO for a mix of any size NUMBERS &/or LETTERS and I will do a special custom listing with greatly discounted shipping.
See IDEAS below!****
Love the old school letterpress styling of these old letters. This listing is for 1 letter. So much potential for these lovely mid century vintage metal letters (aluminum?) , 2 1/16" tall, varying widths. (See IDEAS below!) Upon research I suspect they were for utility poles or maybe old address, mailbox letters & numbers. They aren't totally flat but are 3-D and have a wonderful old school shape. They also have varied patinas, some more aged, some with more of a sheen. They do look like the numbers/letters (have numbers in 2 other listings) you would see on the sides of wooden telephone poles.They have small holes in them. They could probably be patinaed or painted ( or spray painted) with a paint that works for metals. Not sure of the gauge of the metal but they can give a little if you need them to. but are hardy, not flemsy. Lighter weight. Very versatile! You can see how marvy they look against the patina of old wood! I love the juxaposition of this look. This listing is for one letter. You can tell me your choice from the list below in the memo line of your purchase. If you want more than one, convo me to tell me the ones you want BEFORE checking out and I will do a listing for you! Have quite a few so I will delete from list when sold out.
Also, if you want to use these as gift tags or for a use that needs a twine, I can add a baker's twine for .20 per number or letter. Just convo first so I can change listing. I have red/cream, brown/cream, and black/cream. (See photos 3, 4 & 5.) Really adds to the old school vibe. (:
NOTE: I have 2 other listings of numbers this same size or larger letters. They are in the "Letterpress, Salvage, ETC" section of my shop.
****IDEAS****
- Loop striped baker's twine or thin ribbon thru one of the holes and use them as gift tags for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, etc. Or use the letters for initial tags. They add some bling on their own but you could add bells or other embellishments to the twine for Christmas or another occasion.
- Tie them onto Christmas stockings as gifts or to indentify stockings
- Use numbers to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries, sports numbers, etc. on cards, tablescapes, presents, scrapbooking, mixed media, etc. Use letters for initial decor in the same way.
- Make great industrial vibe decor !You can lean them on shelves to create number sequences, initials, spell words, etc. Put them above room doors for a hotel vibe (really cute in a beach house or cabin, or over a guest room door.) Or if your last name begins with "S", you could label the rooms "S 1", "S 2", etc.
- The numbers make fun office decor for an accountant, math teacher, banker, etc. Letters would look neat incorporated in a printer's or graphic artist's office.
- Attach to a small glass block or wooden block to make a paper weight
- Incorporate them onto journal covers
- Use these to make words, sentences, or signs, free standing (can lean) or attach to wood, an old box, suitcase, etc.
- With the letter U, you can take another letter to use them for University themed creations (cards, journals, any of the ideas) aka UM, UD, UG
- JUST LET THEM BE! ~ piled in a bowl or clear vase for your industrial, mod, loft, or mid century decor. I like the way they look showing thru an old mason jar!
Here is a list of letters available: (This listing is for letters only. Have a good supply of these. I will eliminate letters from list when each is depleted.) Remember to convo BEFORE checking out if you want more than one, want numbers also from the number listing, a larger letter from the other letter listing, or want twine.
***** Letters available in the 2 1/16" size in THIS LISTING are:
A ONLY 1 left, has some aging rust colored spots on one edge.
B
D
E
F
O
S
X
In a separate listing I also have E, G, J, L (Have 1 copper and lots of silver L), O, S, and U.
These from the other listing are shown in last photo.
(Have D & M in the larger size. See listing in "Letterpress, Glass, etc." section of my shop!
Since these are not flat but 3 D and are somewhat bendable, must be mailed non-bendable, non-machinable, to protect them. This accounts for the shipping being more than a flat card of this size. Of course if you purchase more than one, I will be able to do shipping discount. Shipping is for mainland U.S. Convo with zip for Alaska, Hawaii, or outside U.S.

That's the end of this listing but to get some Christmas ideas for some of my vintage offerings or for an overview of the variety of items I offer, read on!

SPECIAL NOTE:
Last Christmas I made a wonderful Christmas Dept/General store vignette at my antique desk. I used vintage seals, cards, ribbons, gift wrap, candles, a dept store santa, etc to set up a display that made you feel you were back in time. It brought a nostalgia and comfort to my den. The glow of candle light at night made it even more cosy and charming! You could do this on a table, desk, shelf, a chair in a corner, etc. In SeaSeaRider, I have assembled some items that would work well for this. Search my shop for "general store". Recently listed items will be tagged with this but you also need to look in my vintage sections of Christmas Decor & Christmas Cards to see more choices. Check out several old Christmas signs I have listed! They would be perfect for this type vignette. How fun!!
I will do my best to combine SHIPPING on any multiple purchases, which can easily be done with these cards. Convo for rate or if you don't want to wait, check out and know I will do my best to refund thru Paypal. I am unable to put that automatically on my shipping rates since I carry such a wide range of items in my shop.
SeaSeaRider specializes in seashell/beach/nautical vintage and original art and home decor but also a variety of "other" inspired themes. As a sampling, I have old coral, shells, sea fans, seashell bookplates that make unique affordable art, ship themed items, books, bird & botanical bookplate prints, old wooden letterpress, sea-themed original & vintage jewelry, my handmade sea signs called "Sea Shingles", vintage Christmas & Valentines, etc.
Come on over for a mini vacation! Much to inspire you to decorate, create, or gifts for the hard to buy for vintage and/or ocean lover!
