A pair of 8 line Open Manicules

Image of A pair of 8 line Open Manicules


A set of two 8 line Open Manicules, laser cut into end grain hard maple.
Sometimes also called Printer's Fist, Pointer, or Index. The Morgans and Wilcox design of an open manicule with limited engraving on the cuff is typical of the manicules in the 1800's. The open design gives the printer a light, eye-catching graphic that can contain a word or short text. This one was inspired from the Morgans and Wilcox Manufacturing Company's specimen book from 1898 page of Indexes
