I got nothing, other than it probably has something to do with Fred Harvey, the railroad & hotel tycoon.

Looks like it would be used in a printing press to roll his signature on paper stock.

Put a handle on it...



smoosh the metal part onto the ink pad. Then press the metal part (with the ink applied) to a piece of paper or whatever.

If you want I suppose you could change your name to Fred Harvey... since you already have the signature stamp. Not sure which is more cost effective.
