Vintage Monogram Rubber Stamp, French, Medium Size, Monogram Initial Letter Y. Circa 1920'sA French unused vintage monogram initial stamp, these stamps would have been used to stamp ones initial on bed sheets and other linen items which would then be embroidered over. As one can see from the last picture I bought a huge lot of these all of which are unused. Contrary to popular belief, monograming was not only to make the linens look pretty, its real use was as laundry markers to identify one's linens when sent to the laundry. Rubber initial on a wooden block.Lovely old late Art Nouveau style script. This one is the letter YDates from around 1920'SThe initial is approx 1.50 inches tall.Condition, unused, excellent.
