Paper

Welcome to our rare paper collection!

We have a stock of a few thousand sheets of antique & vintage blank paper from the 15th to the early 20th century, mostly with watermarks.

Very interesting material for paper historians, collectors, artists, education and book restoration.

We have some very large blank sheets for artists who want to work on antique high quality paper, the same papers as used by famous artists like Constable, Rossetti, Gainsborough, Turner, van Gogh and the other Impressionists, etc.

Some paper is sold per sheet and some as a collection.

For book restoration purposes we can, in many cases, match a sample for you. Also when a page of a book is missing we can make a print on matching paper.

We have more paper than shown on this website. If you are looking for something particular, then please contact us and let us know what you are looking for.

Of course we are also interested in buying paper collections!
