Empty Possible Half Upper Case


This typecase construction was shown for sale on e-bay on 2 May 2022 by a seller in England. It is a half upper case in style, as it measures 32x27x4 cm, very close to the 162/3 x 141/2 inch Half Upper Case of Miller & Richard, Caslon et al. However, their cases have an extra row of boxes, i.e. 49 rather than 42 boxes, so it is possible that this case is an in-house design. The lack of one row makes the case less useful than the more usual 49 boxes, which can be laid out as for example the Half Cap Case of Hamilton Manufacturing Company.
