*Marking means that these stencils were primarily used for marking goods. Usually cargo, machinery, building parts, equipment like crates, duffle bags, etc...

Of course, stenciling is as old as mankind. Think of our ancestors' handprints on rock walls. There are, of course, many other stencils - not just those for marking, such as the linen decorating stencils and linen initials that were very popular around 1900.
