Vintage Antique French Letter Press Printer's Tray. Letterpress drawer, Wooden Printers Tray. Parisian Large, Industrial Loft Decor.
Letterpress drawer, well crafted antique printers tray. The original paper is still in most of the compartments, though some are ripped. I have found so many great ideas on pinterest for these drawers, they make great cupboard doors, coffee tables, group a few together to make a bed headboard. This was hung on the wall and the compartments filled with small collectables. You can of course attach them to your wall to display your collections.
It is backed with wood on the bottom. The edges of the drawer are dove tailed. I have only lightly cleaned this so it may still be a bit dusty and there may be an odd bit of old cobweb but it's easily cleaned and polished if you wish to do so. Sometimes there are a few handwritten letters or numbers on some of the compartments on these trays where the printer has written these on himself to help identify them easily when he was using the tray! The original backing paper is normally still there, sometimes perfect, sometimes a little torn and worn with time and use, please see photos for general condition. Occasionally you may find one or two of the small compartment sides that have broken or come a little loose through time, I try to capture this in the photos but please be aware that it is not always easy to identify as they can look perfect until very close inspection! There are 89 small sections in tray.
