Vintage printers type tray decorative storage

Decorative wall storage displayOld print printing type tray now re-used for home storage

These wonderful old wooden trays, which are available in sizes small, medium and large, were originally the print type trays used by printers to store all their individual letters.

As you can see, each tray has lots of different sized compartments and plenty of storage. The trays would work fine used flat on a surface, or in a drawer, but one rather clever way of using the trays is to mount them on the wall to serve a decorative wall display. You can pop all your favourite trinkets and treasures in the tray slots and display them in your home.

The vintage printer type trays are sold by Velvet Ribbon with prices starting at £55 for the small tray.
