A COLLECTION OF THREE ANTIQUE WOODEN PRINTING BLOCKS from Rajesthan in North West India. Although printing cloth by using a hand carved wooden block, which has a design carved into one surface, is practised in several Asian countries it is most commonly associated with India. The designs are drawn in a way that allows them to be stamped close together and provide one whole picture. It is skilled work. The preparation of the material to be printed on is a long process. Hand blocked printed or painted cloth is a small segment of the overall Oriental Rug and Textiles subject, but a fascinating one nevertheless. References 3452, 3453 and 3455. Euros 18 each.
