Vintage set of Brass leather workers - bookbinders lettering embossing hand tools
A comprehensive vintage set of Brass leather workers - bookbinders lettering embossing hand tools once used by a now retired bookbinder and mounted on a workbench block.
They are a 1. 1/4 inch set in a Roman typeface and consist of the following: ABCDEFGHIJKLMN PQRSTUVWXYZ& A/E 2368 (32 in total)
Please note the set is missing the letter "0". The lettering blocks are in sound useable condition most having a wonderful aged workshop patina. They are mounted on a workbench mount block for easy selection and storage - Marked 1. 1/4".
Two old handles are supplied. They were attached prior to use for heating on a burner prior to embossing or gilding. All in all this is an impressive set and represents good value, both as working tools or as a decorative display for the lettering collector.
