Description
This wooden box of children's alphabet blocks was made in Germany and I believe would date either to the very end of the Victorian era or the Edwardian era. The Zoological illustrations which are lithographic prints are wonderful with each letter having its own animal on the reverse of the block and the lid which slides open is a graphic design marvel and as I have said in the title this box of blocks has been much loved and much used with the paper many of the blocks missing in parts as well as both crayon and pencil marks.

condition
As I have already mentioned this box of blocks is not in perfect condition it is I think the phrase used in 'Play Worn Condition' and I have taken this into account in the pricing. As already stated some parts of the Lithographic prints of the animals has been lost and I have photographed the nine where I think this is most true. On the reverse some of the alphabet blocks have crayon / pencil marks and again I have photographed the nine it is most true of. Indeed the crayon and pencil marks can also been found on the underside of the box, on the inside of the box and on the lid of the box, where the there are again some losses to the paper and indeed some crayon and pencil marks. There is also a small loss to the wood on the top edge of the box.
