Fantastic lot of assorted embossed printing plates with name and mailing address. These are "old school" mailing list files--see the cabinet they came out of in the last photo! Your purchase includes 25 randomly selected plates per lot. I currently have 3 lots posted, but more available, so let me know if you are interested in greater quantities.

Each plate measures 4" long x 2.25" tall, with the address area measuring 3.5" long x 1" tall. The address area can be removed from the larger plate if desired. Some, but not all, have a paper label attached showing the printed address corresponding to the plate image. Most addresses are in the Richmond, VA area dating from as early as the 1930s through the 1960s. Very good vintage condition.

These parts would be great to use in assemblage found art projects or other such crafts. Just waiting for your inspiration to determine their new usage. Please consider combining this lot with more similar lots, or with any of our other vintage part lots.

(I am also selling the metal file storage cabinet through the Richmond VA Craigslist postings if you are interested. You must be able to arrange a shipper, but I can assist with pickup. I recommend TSC Moving).
