J Whatman 19th Century Antique Packs

Regular price £30.00

This collection of paper came from a paper conservator and have been collected over the years from various sources.

Some of the sheets are watermarked (dates or J Whatman) and some are not. We are presuming it's all J Whatman on the look and feel of the papers, they're all very, very similar in tone, weight and surface. 

This is original J Whatman Drawing paper which was made for fine-art in general incuding drawing, watercolour and printmaking and used by artists such as Turner and Blake.

Condition is mixed; some are clean, some are showing signs of age including foxing and discolouration.
