|The picture shows a view of the (3) Unused 1954 The Barefoot Contessa Movie Ad Mat Molds in this lot. These ad mats are not dated but they are from the 1954 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 mat is like a miniature 3-D poster and would look nice framed, or you could still use them to make print blocks from. The print blocks 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. This admat has a movie scene images with actors and actresses from the movie. The bonus in this lot is three printed views of the images on the admat mold. These are advertising the admats. The molds are marked as follows:|
