[Woodblock].  Large manicule. [U.S. ? U.K.: unknown artist, 1880s]. 1 block (17.8 cm x 10 cm x 2.3 cm; 7" x 3.75" x .875").
$285.00

Sizable and neatly executed woodcut printing block of a manicule pointing to the right (or to the left when printed), with detail of a suit jacket and dress shirt. The carving has shading grooves of different depths, making this a nice example of a woodblock design for teaching, and a past owner must have used it as a decoration (rather than for printing) as a metal hook has been attached for its easy hanging.

Stained woodblock with metal hanger; excellent condition with four very small (worm?)holes only, and with old paper remnants adhered to bottom edge. => Perfect for teaching or decorating, perhaps both.  (37171)   Please RESHELVE This.
