New listings on Etsy! Vintage printing stamps from India!

Little printing stamps from India

I got a bunch of these little stamps from a dealer who had bought them at an estate sale.  It looks like they had been in storage for a long time as the boxes they were in were in pretty bad shape.  These stamps are small:  1.5" x 1" x 1"  (Metric: 3.25 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm) and the images they produce are not that great.  I tested a couple.  But, I think they could be fun as a quick repeat design on cards of fabric.

I divided them up into sets of six and am selling them for $12.50 a set (a couple bucks each).  The fun thing is, many of them are also whistles!  See the holes on the sides?  They sound like a kazoo or a cat in heat, or, the ones that work do.  I also thought there could be other uses for these: knobs on drawers or boxes, party favors, shadow box piece, etc.

You can see all of the stamps I have in stock on this page:  Textile Stamps.
