A vintage printer's block of the Parrot persuasion perched with stand and feed cup and looking to be an amiable fellow indeed. The printing portion is made of a heavy metal although I don't know what kind, while the block is of wood, and both are attached to each other via nails. The piece measures 5.5 inches in length, 2 1/8 inches in width and is .75 inches wide with a nice weight for its size. It is in good vintage condition with discolorations from past printings and is marked with the number 11 in four places on the wood. Great for crafts, stationary, textiles (think clothing, tablecloths, tote bags, curtains) and, of course, shadow boxes.
