Brass Print Blocks for Whisky Cases

Postby Whiskyanny » Sun Apr 11, 2004 8:38 pm

Hi, a friend just bought a pile of very old brass or copper printing blocks that were used in a Scottish Distillery for many years. They were used for labelling whisky cases and possibly barrels. How collectable are these items? He paid £50 for six or seven of them and reckons they're worth a fortune. They're very large and heavy items, does anyone collect these?? Thanks for any advice.

I think you'll find that your friend has a very interesting collection but the group of people interested in them is quite small. If you are looking to sell them I suggest you put them on ebay individually. You will soon see if there is any interest.
