1960s/1970s Boxed Set of Acrylic, Light Box Letters
This is a large box of acrylic letters and numbers, I’m guessing from around the 1960s/1970s but it’s quite difficult to pinpoint an age. A great piece to create displays for your business or home! Once you start playing with these it’s difficult to stop!
The black, oblong pieces of acrylic have a white, number/letter outline printed on them leaving a clear section in the centre. I think they must’ve been used on a light box of some kind as the set also includes coloured filters. You would use these behind the acrylic pieces to change the colour of the clear sections (see photos). There are quite a few of some letters but only one of some. Also, there is no S or number 1. There is a stack of blanks and a small number of punctuation and symbols tiles. There are over 100 pieces but including the filters I’d estimate there to be over 200 pieces.
In great condition generally although they do have age to them so they are quite dusty, worn in some areas, scratched or a little chipped around the edges. The box also has extensive wear but it’s lovely that they are still in the original box.
The box measures 57.5cm long x 36.5cm wide x 5cm deep
The letters are 6.5cm long x 4.8cm wide
