Original Artwork & Plates


This amazing stock from 1948-2001 has both the original Artwork used for the cachets and the metal plates from which they came. Also included are many House of Farnam Artwork as Artmaster later assumed production of these cachets.  The early Artmaster covers were single color engravings and then starting with the Christmas issues of the 1960’s, they began experimenting with multicolor printing.

With the purchase of the archives we discovered an interesting and little known fact : Artmaster also printed special commercial mailers for the Bekins Moving Company from 1962-1972. Much smaller quantities were printed of these and the only difference from the Artmaster cachets is the Bekins name engraved in the plate. These unique plates and artwork are sure to pique the interest of both Issue and Topical collectors!  The artwork typically measures 15’ high by 13” wide. Engraving plates measure approximately 3” x 4 ¼”
