Description

Vintage 1950's French industrial fabric printing block. These were commonly used in eastern France where the textile industry was very strong back then. The stamps are made of unknown chunky wood which has been engraved with a floral pattern for printing. This process was done by hand and the person doing the impressions had to match it to perfection to connect the pattern. Each stamp has its serial number painted onto it and has been moderately used. Unusual decorative item with a real industrial past.
