Vintage Letterpress Printing Printers Coat of Arms Balfour Copper Block Monogram Steampunk Industrial Celtic Swirls Shield Letterhead
Vintage Pair "Balfour" Letterpress Blocks
These are two vintage copper letterpress blocks that I picked up in a grab bag at an Estate Sale. They have been used previously. I have not tried to clean them or print with them.
The two blocks were made for a business (or perhaps family) called “Balfour”. The long rectangular block has nine identical equally spaced designs mounted on it. I supposed this was used to print Letterhead.
The small block has a larger version of the Balfour Coat of Arms on it.
They are metal mounted on wood blocks. The metal on the long piece appears to be copper. The other piece seems to be a silver colored metal.
The design features a classic columned building on top of a shield which contains four Celtic swirls or waves of water. “Balfour” is written in the ribbon below the shield.
The long rectangular block measures 11 by 1/2 by 1 inches, approximately. The other block measures 1 by 1-1/2 by 1 inches, approximately.
I have other letterpress blocks for sale in my shop. Thanks for looking.
