An interesting and collectable antique printing block featuring a fisherman at the wheel of a trawler and the words:
‘Be Guided by Men of Experience’.
This wonderful piece of nautical and printing history measures approx. 7.5 x 6.5 x 2.5cm. It has a wooden backing and a copper face. The cooper on the bottom left corner is folded slightly.
These types of blocks were used in newspaper and print shops in the late 19th and early 20th century. I have reversed one of the photos to show more clearly how the print would appear on a printed surface.
A great antique collectable printing block featuring a fisherman.
