This is a vintage box of paper stencils with eight different people of noteworthiness. The lid of the box has two prominent United States Presidents, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. The 8 oil paper sheets inside the box each contain one silhouette image. The image can be punched out so you actually have a negative and a positive image that can be traced or painted. The inside of the lid has a list of several different sets in the Ideal Art Stencils series. This set is No. 7 which contains the following; George and Martha Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Coolidge, Franklin, Edison and Hamilton. The original price of the set was 50 cents and it was made by the Child Welfare Publishers, Inc. if Evanston, Illinois. I believe this set is from the 1930’s.
The sheets are all 5” by 6” except for Edison which is 5” by 6 ¾” and the image sizes vary. Most all of them have been punched out but all of them are in very good condition with minimal wear. The box measures 6” by 7” and is in good condition with minor edge and corner wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
