Item specifics

Product: TYPE CASES Age: Post-1940
Primary Material: Wood/ Woodenware Original/Repro: Original
Style/ Period: Edwardian

These full size, old, wooden Printers Typecases were used by compositors to store the metal type and can be used for display purposes in the home or shop environment.


These type cases are straight from the printers workshop and have not been cleaned, stained or polished in any way. (Detailed cleaning instructions will be included with your purchase) Some buyers prefer to show them in their natural grubby state. Although these cases are in fairly good condition the majority of them have been in constant use for over 40+ years, day in and day out and will obviously show signs of wear and tear. Some are in better condition than others and it would be impractical to photograph each individual type case. Some have paper linings and some do not. Some are grubbier than others.

In general the older type cases tend to be the dirtiest. 


A handle for each case is included in the price with these 3 section cases..


The cases have 95 compartments and measure: 32.1/2" X 14.1/4" X 1.3/8" thick. (825mm x 362mm x 35mm) Inside depth is 1" (25mm)

Compartment Measurements: Largest 138mm x 60mm/ 2nd Largest 90mm x 60mm/ 3rd Largest 90mm x 28mm/ 4th Largest 60mm x 44mm/ 5th Largest 58mm x 34mm/ 6th Largest 44mm x 28mm/ 7th Largest 35mm x 33mm.

All measurements are approximate.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you wish to order more than one type case, wait for me to send you an invoice before you pay. I will then be able to combine your cases and you will save on the postage costs.
