Pack of 50+ 1800s Book Pages and Three Antique Iron Keys.
A wonderful pack of 50+ authentic antique French book pages, dated 1857, tied with twine and displayed with three genuine antique iron keys.
You will receive:
50+ double sided pages from an 1857 edition of "Théâtre contemporain illustré**", A4 size, measuring 21cms wide x 30cms long approx. (8¼" x 11¾".) These pages are 166 years old!
Three antique iron keys, measuring 10cms, 10cm and 9cms long (4", 4" and 3½".)
Irresistibly stylish displayed simply as they are; perfect too, for paper ephemera collectors, as a supply for scrapbooking, journaling, artists, and paper crafters.
They have all aged naturally and this has created a beautiful range of shades from antique white through ivory and beige to sepia.
The patina on these pages is amazing. The paper feels old and "time worn".
These pages are "fluffy" with irregular edges, they are "aged to perfection" and are in genuine antique condition, as you can see from the photos, they have "age spots" and edge discoloration which adds to their charm and authenticity. They have rough edges along their spines.
Most of these sheets have text/print/images on both sides.
*It is important to note that no books have been deliberately destroyed to create this pack. All of the pages here have been salvaged from books too damaged to re-sell or repair. We are simply recycling as much of these gorgeous old books as possible.
**You will receive exactly this front page and the three keys in the photos, the pack is made up of a wide range of pages. We couldn't photograph all the pages, but we promise it's a great mixture of illustrations and text.
