"Five; Six; Pick up sticks..."

I was lucky enough to get hold of some wonderful, vintage wooden letterpress blocks recently. They came to me from Dublin and had clearly been sitting, unloved, in a shed for years and years...this set me off on a hunt for more and this is the result...

I set about cleaning them up a bit and what magical things emerged from under the dust and ink! There is still some ink and paint on the blocks, and they do have some dinks and scratches, but that is part of their history and charm. Now they can be part of your history and charm!

I made up some words and sets of numbers that I think would look great sitting on a shelf, desk or mantelpiece.

These is a mixed set of ten number blocks from 1 to 0...a perfect gift for the Number-lover in your life.

Set 3 is made up of individual blocks measuring:-

"1" - 2 1/3" x 1/2"
"2" - 1" x 1/2"
"3" - 2" x 3/8"
"4" - 1 1/4" x 5/8"
"5" - 1 5/8" x 1 5/8"
"6" - 1 1/4" x 5/8"
"7" - 2" x 3/8"
"8" - 2 5/8" x 3/4"
"9" - 1 1/4" x 3/4"
"0" - 1 5/8" x 1".

Total width when sitting together = 7 1/2".
