Complete Set of Children's Alphabet Blocks Early 20th century

 

 A charming full set of Alphabet Blocks made for children dating from the early 20th century.  Each image is printed onto a light pine base, illustrating the nations of the world, as recognized at that time

 

 

 

On the reverse of each is a simple rhyme relating to the country shown.  Many are sweet but some are not very politically correct I'm afraid - but that's history!

 

Unfortunately, the blocks may have been framed at some point in their history and some of the rhymes have been obscured by whatever fixing was used.

 

The set comprises of 24 blocks: the Q and the X omitted.

 

Size each approx:  2" x 4.75"    6.5cm x 12cm

 

Ref:  455

 

£195 the set
