Antique Brass FISHING REEL Pictorial Advert Printing Block #B534:
$124.56


This is one of about 2000 antique and vintage printing blocks / plates I am currently working through - all from one old deceased estate collection.These are from c1890s - c1950s.Most are engraved copper, brass, or steel mounted onto wood blocks, some are just the metal plates.These were for printing labels or adverts in magazines and newspapers of the era. All are very interesting and mainly relate to advertising of loose tobacco, pipes, cigarettes, cigar companies and retailers such as Josiah & Brown of Long Eaton as well as sporting related companies. Football, boxing, tennis, hockey, horse racing etc. Sandown Patent chest expanders. Clothing makers. Patents, and leather luggage such as suitcases and trunks. Boy Scouts Whistles. Some really fantastic PICTORIAL examples too.
I will reverse one of the photographs so you can see what any wording says, but remember they are all backwards in real life!This is a pictorial printing block depicting a fishing reel. You will all have seen these simple all brass with a small horn or wood handle type... in fact I have one on a shelf in my actual antique shop.
Josiah Brown was not only a tobacconist but a high end retail store as well selling all manner of goods like this.
A nice GO-WITH if you collect fishing reels, not many printing blocks with them on I doubt.No branding or maker's marks etc.
Please see photographs provided for more details and visual confirmation of condition.
Normal signs of age and use wear.It measures approx. 60mm x 54mm x 22mm.My stock ref :In drawer 3 - 1062126th January a UK buyer has just got his package I sent to him 1st Class Signed for service which I posted to him on 3rd January this year. That is ROYAL MAIL service inland which is not good enough. Shocking.The ROYAL MAIL postal service I have been using for the past 45 years and I was always a loyal customer and I would always want to use them over anyone else have let me down seriously this year. Their service was on a downer for the last year or so but has come to head in November - December when they took strike action for many days during those months. Their service was pretty bad before this to be fair but what a SHAMBLES it is now. I have customers around the world and in the UK that have not had delivery of their packages from me, sent tracked mail. Lost or delayed in sorting depot's and customs terminals. This is such a shocking service from a company that should have been TOP of their game. I have had to resort to the GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM for international deliveries and to be honest I do not think I will be in any rush to go back to using RM. They have lost my business, which is a considerable amount over a year. They need to get their finger pulled out and their act together otherwise I can see them really going down the pan and being bought by a rival for a £1. All UK sellers are in the same boat and like me will be jumping ship, some jumped ship many years ago and I wish I had done. I have refunded more £££ this year than I have done at any other time and put in more claims to RM for their incompetent services.
