Antique German Copper Monogram Stencil "SB" unused


Stencil with 7 initials - several different scripts in different sizes.

5" by 5". Stencil has not been used.

This is a true antique - from around 1900-1920, and - though never used - t will be some discoloration and darkening... and an occasional crimp - it just happens with age!!

Old stencils like this one were used during a time when young ladies looking to marriage would embroider their trousseau. Often young girls would start in their teens to collect linens and would hand-embroider their maiden name initials - after engagement (usually one year) the monogram would include the fiance's last name initial.



Shipping charge listed above is for USA - delivery confirmation is included (if you're wondering, why t are a few foam peanuts in your envelope - that's why! For del. conf. the envelope has to be 3/4" thick)!! INSURANCE IS A*L*W*A*Y*S AN OPTION ! Foreign bidders - worldwide shipping charge is listed on the bottom!!
