Empty Swiss Single Case


This Swiss case configuration, made in wood, is 66cm x 61cm and ws in the Ecomusée Voltaire, Geneva in 2004. Although no layout was available, it can be assumed that the rows of larger boxes in the upper cases section would be for the capitals, with either Y Z or U J in the smaller boxes. The many additional small boxes in the upper and lower sections allow for accented letters, ligatures and signs, there being a total of 150 boxes.
