This is a collection of 19 letterpress cuts from the 1920s and one has a copyright date of 1928. The first photo is the entire group of 19 cuts, the largest being 18" and the smallest two dingbats.
Few of these large cuts survived the scrap metal drives of WW II but these sat in a box in an abandoned building for sixty years. I rented the building and discovered them in 1990. I am sure the shop didn't survive the Depression.
Included with them, along with the antique box they were found in, is an old dessicated rubber stamp with the name of the dress shop that used them for newspaper advertising.
The majority are 6 3/8" cuts of ladies' fashions of the 1920s.
I would appreciate advise from anyone on how to sell these cuts. I have had them for 20+ years and don't have a clue. They're sitting in my safe.
