PHILADELPHIA QUARTERMASTER DEPOT PRINT BLOCK:  A scarce and unusual artifact from the Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot Restaurant, this print block was used - quite possibly in their in-house print shop - for items such as menus, meal tickets, or invitations. 

In excellent condition with fully legible engraving, the block measures 2.25" long, 1.5" wide and just shy of 1" thick.  The engraved steel plate is fixed to a wooden block.  This is the sort of type face print block which was used in the old mechanical presses of the 19th and 20th Centuries. 

This is an interesting artifact from the Quartermaster Depot, and no doubt, probably a one of a kind piece of history.  (0818)  $75
