We suspect these stickers to have been produced in the 1940s or 1950s, but we do not have any documentation to support our conjecture, only our experience.
The metallic paper is fine and these feel delicate to the touch, but they are all in tact and in pretty great condition for their age. The embossing is intricate and beautiful. They are old store stock from a stationery store, but were loose, not packaged or identified.
We've packaged them in groups of 3 for your collection or for your crafting. Each sticker measures 1 inch square.
These are gummed seals, so the adhesive must be water activated. Because the adhesive on the back is as vintage as the pieces themselves, we recommend that you moisten them with a sponge or cloth. In fact, some of the adhesive appears darker, but this does not affect the image at all! To be perfectly safe, you might want to use archival glue or paste instead of the vintage adhesive.
Our illustration only shows 1 of the 3 seals in a package.
