Presenting a fantastic antique compendium of brass stencils that could be creatively utilised in many ways today.

This boxed set features the alphabet, numbers from 1-10 and the ‘&’ and ‘£’ symbols. The set is only missing numbers eight and nine. Indeed, there are doubles of many of the other letters and numbers with most having a lower case representative.  Each character has its own marked housing slot. The plates are interchangeable if required.

The box is clearly stamped at one end with BRASS and labelled ‘Compartment Font’ amongst other information relating to the contents whilst the sliding lid bears the name of a certain R.E.LUXTON who was clearly a one-time owner.

An increasingly difficult to find collection.
