Antique 1845 End Papers Turkish Marbled Matched and Hand Pulled
Antique 1845 Turkish Marbled Hand Pulled Matched End Papers
Deep burgundies, royal blue, rich golden mustard smooth creams ~ rich colors all swirled and feathered in a pattern ... yet without a pattern. Marbling.
Handmade marbled endpapers 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 set of 2 papers of rich reds, rusts, blues, and cream is from an 1845 English natural history reference. Each measures approx 6.625" x 10" (17x25 cm). The edges remain smooth and the corners sharp 120+ years later. Minor color scuffing can be seen along the edges.
An absolute treasure for use in your paper arts today ~ bookmaking, card and tag creation ... use as a background for your photography, a base for your collage. The feel, the weight of these papers is simply wonderful.
You are purchasing original 1845 papers and they do not have watermarks. I'll send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
