19th c. Metal Linen Fabric Quilt Stamp - Kinderhook, NY - Luykas Van Alen House
The wonderful stamp design features a bird / dove on top surrounded by floral motifs, and a central flower with botanical motifs on the bottom. In the middle of the raised design, there is a channel allowing for type to be inserted. A scallop shell thumb screw holds the type in place.
Acquired in the late 1970s from the Luykas Van Alen House, Kinderhook, NY
*I didn't have an ink pad available, so the mark was made with paint.
