Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

Materials

copper, wood

Vintage letterpress printing block featuring the word, or perhaps the brand name, Hurricane in charming script font. Block itself is made of wood while typeface is constructed from a piece of copper and metal mounted to the wood with nails.

Face of block measures approximately 2 5/8" across and about 3/4" tall. Block is 7/8" thick/deep.

We test stamped this block with a basic acid-free ink pad and gently cleaned it afterward. Metal plate is securely affixed to block and is a delight to stamp with.
Great for printing or display.

Additional policies

Each item in our shop is described to the best of our ability and with the knowledge we have gained from years of collecting and researching. Please purchase items for what you think them to be and ask any questions you may have before purchasing.
As most of our items several decades old, thus earning the moniker "vintage," they have been used and loved by someone else before coming to us. As a result, many show their age and wear from use. We do our best to accurately represent the condition of each item-- please carefully review item descriptions and photographs (enlarge them for a closer look!).

We are not trained as jewelers but we do have the ability to test for metal content and often we are able to electronically test diamonds. Gemstone type described is often our best estimate.

All items are store in and shipped from a pet friendly (dogs and cats) and smoke-free environment.
