Vintage Print Block Wood Metal textile Block Stamp Horticulture Gardening Tools block print rare very old No. 119
This block depicts a beautiful and intricate floral and garden tool design. I believe it could be used for fabric, ceramic, plaster, candles, paper, or whatever one can imagine. Thin metal strips are pressed into wood which should create very fine lines. As far as I can tell, all strips are present.
I do not know the age of this large block, but believe it may be an antique. This was made in France and has blanc 6772 written on the back. The numbers 6772 are also stamped on the side. It measures 12 1/2 inches by 12 inches by 2 inches. This one was hung on someone's wall as it has eye hooks and a wire across the back. The edges are a mite dangerous as there are a couple of nails or metal out the side. This one is cracked in at least two spots. I assume from age. There are octagonal holes in the back. These areas look to have a concrete type mixture lining them.
Made in France

This is pre- owned and is in good condition. There are a couple of flaws mentioned above. They are a couple of spots and lighter shade of material on the shoulder and down the arms. I do try to describe each item to the best of my ability. I note any flaws or defects that may not have been original to the item.
