Hand Carved Tophat Man with Child Woodtype
W1878

5.5 x 7 pica ( 15/16 x 1 3/16 inch )

Primitive hand-carved solid boxwood printer's block. This block used two pieces to make up the entire area. A crack is visible close to the foot of the child. This is where the two pieces are glued together. Nice folk-art piece carved during the 19th century.

Foundry Marking: None
