Turkish Marbled End Papers 1845 Extra Large Victorian Matched Set

by PetitPoulailler

Luscious rose, forest green, teal, gilt and cream - rich colors all swirled and bubbled and twirled into a pattern ... yet without a pattern. Marbling.

Handmade marbled end-papers were at one time used extensively, but today they are found in a very limited number of hand-bound books. The paper is heavier in order to take the wear inherent with a book being opened to that first page, again and again. Heavier, too, to be able to withstand the very process of marbling.

This beautiful and wonderfully over-sized set of 2 matched end-papers of rich pink, rose, gold, teal, green and cream is from a Paris Salon art guide.

Each heavy, marbled paper is blank on its reverse, measures a fantastic 9.5" x 13.5" (24x34 cm), and is smooth and clear with colors wonderfully bright. Expect some bumps and pings along the edges which is normal for papers of this age - nothing of significant.

A treasure for use in your paper arts today - bookmaking, card and tag creation ... use as a background for your photography, a base for collage. The feel, the weight of these papers is simply wonderful.

You are purchasing original 1845 papers and they do not have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
