Authentic, original vintage wooden printers tray letterpress drawers have finally arrived. These curio organisers and display cases are loved by DIY'ers or those who like to upcycle or repurpose furniture.
Approximate size: W75-85cm x D32-37cm x H3-5cm (dimensions and compartment configuration may vary).
These letterpress type trays are in their original condition. Lots of character and totally authentic after many decades in a print factory. The final image shows the 'regular' and 'large' printers' trays.
Today these printer's trays can be used as innovative storage cases, display cases, organizers or wall hangings with multiple compartments...perfect for your personal treasures especially if you have a large collection of small objects! Consider organizing your craft space or children's room with these vintage printing block trays.
There are two types of trays available: uniform compartments (almost all are the same size 3cm x 4cm) and mixed compartments. The 'uniform' trays may not have all the compartments the same size. If you would like a specific type of tray, please select the product option above when ordering. If you don't request either type, we will select a tray to send to you at random.
The tray's bottom may have gaps between the boards, may be split or cracked and may not be uniform in colour. Scaramanga's original vintage printer's trays are not new or made to look old. They may have some of the dividers missing or broken, uneven edges, marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition.
