These five lovely, large carved wooden letterpress printing blocks spell out 'beads' in stylish Art Nouveau-esque typography.

In the second photo you'll see a standard sized business card placed into shot to provide a sense of scale - each letter measures around 25.5cm high and is 16.5cm wide so much larger than the norm and the years of contact with ink have left the wooden letters with a dark, rich colouring.

Excepting for a few small scuffs/nicks to the sides the blocks are in good condition and stand on end relatively happily for display purposes.

Each letter is roughly 25.5cm high, 16.5cm wide and 2.4cm deep.


  • H: 25.5cm (10.04in)
  • W: 16.5cm (6.50in)
  • D: 2.4cm (0.94in)

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
