Description
 
A set of 24 of 26 Victorian Scrap or Relief alphabet or ABC occupational die-cut figures circa 1880.  Each figure measures approx 5 3/4" high and has an associated small scrap with an alphabet letter and verse describing the character.  The smaller scraps would have originally been connected with a ladder (or paper strip) to the character.  Examples include E was an Earl with pride on his brow, M was a Miser, who hoarded up gold, Z was a Zany, who looked a great fool.  Delightful examples of Victorian characters.  Condition: lacking the small scrap for "L" presumed Lady, and both characters and small scraps for N & S. Overall light wear.  Vibrant color.  A scarce group of Victorian ABC or alphabet scrap depicting life at the time.
