There’s probably only one good word to use to describe this vintage drop cap letter O image – opulent. With an overall silhouette of a wall clock, four griffins, fans of ferns, flowers and even a bird in a cage, it is definitely one of the most elaborate vintage, fancy letter O images you’re bound to find. I do hope is someone uses this great letter O image that they will share what they have done with it.
