Early Antique Truth Mark Stamp

Item ID: 2744 | Category: Antique And Vintage


This is a rare and very early example of a textile Wooden Truth Mark Stamp. These were used to stamp the end cloth. If the Truth Mark was missing, then it meant that the cloth had been cut down before reaching its destination. Crime prevention made simple. This very tactile and rather naive stamp dates to the 19th century and measures 7.5 x 6.5 x 5.5cms. Hand shown for scale.
