Steel dies of New Orleans stationery company

Nancy Sharon Collins, a New Orleans stationer and graphic designer, recently donated a collection of several hundred engraved steel dies to LSU Special Collections. “Most of these are personal monograms, family crests and seals from local New Orleans private social clubs and organizations,” she writes. These dies were either produced or used by Dameron-Pierson Co., Ltd., of New Orleans, and although none of them are dated, many appear to date back at least as far as the Art Deco period of the 1920s and ’30s.

This collection will be the subject of a mini exhibit in February 2009. Stay tuned for more information.
