This lot consists of one hundred three (103) old decorative initials gathered up from all over the place over a period of decades. NO, we did not break up any complete or near-complete sets—these are orphans, and it’s time for them to go to a good home. Every letter of the alphabet is represented except X. Some are foundry-cast, some are copper electrotypes, some are photoengravings, and there may well be anything else in there. Many of the more elaborate ones are religious.
The first photo above shows the complete lot. The other two photos are closer, and flipped vertically so the initials can be viewed right-reading. We have 2 more equivalent lots of initials and they will be put up in Dutch Auction as each sells. DA0229
