      Hi Filmnet...........You have a printers 'type' block here. Although you did not mention its size.......I'm thinking its no bigger than 2 inches square. There were millions of various images used on these blocks throughout the late 1800's and up until about the 1950's. Many were made of wood, such as the one you have, others were made of metal. All of these were designed to be used in a printing operation, and most of them wound up being used to produce ad's in newspapers.
