The picture below shows a larger view of these (2) Unused 1955 Tarantula Monster Movie Ad Mat Molds. There is a third one as a bonus because part of it was used for advertising. The ad mats are not dated but they are from the 1955 movie. These are molds in which lead is poured to create a thin metal negative image that is then mounted on a wooden block for printing. Advertising is no longer being made or printed like this.

The ad mats are like miniature 3-D posters and would look nice framed, or you could still use them and make print blocks from them. The print block would have been used to print on movie pages in newspapers, in magazines, or in the movie theater programs. It is made of a thick compressed paper board.

All three of these have movie scene images. One is of the giant Tarantula tearing up a city. There are buildings falling and people running for their lives. The admats are marked as follows:

These ad mats together measure about 5-1/8'' x 7-7/8''. The two on the right appear to be in mint unused condition. The left one is a bonus because it is not complete.
