Latest Loves: Antique Brass Stencils
While I was shopping at the Two Gentlemen Antique Shop, I came across a long wooden box. A lid that was meant to slide along the length, within grooves, was set on top.
I lifted the box lid and immediately noticed a thin piece of brass sheet metal that was cut in a stencil type fashion that said “keep this side up.”
I moved the “keep this side up” sheet of brass aside and noticed slots that were segmented off with more sheets of brass metal in each slot. Each slot was marked with a printed and penciled in letter or number. Oh!
I realized what I was looking at when I pulled one of the brass sheet pieces out- antique brass stencils! For every letter and number! And punctuation marks as well!
Each slot had more than one stencil and it was such a cool find that I grabbed it up and wouldn’t set it down until I was ready to make my final purchase of my mountain of finds.
How much do you love these?!
