I have a vitrine display table. I know alot of people use them to display fancy smalls, but today I decided to fill it with antique papers. The only thing that is missing is the old quill pen!
|The papers aren't viewed best from the side, but the sight of them makes you curious!|
|Looks like a piece of history to me!|
I hope you enjoy seeing this as much as I enjoyed buying them and putting this together. I will probably layer more items on top of them. They also would be great to copy and use for other clever things--like wrapping books, perhaps make a photo mat...Hmmm... what fun!
UPDATE!A follower, Dr Vacuum, found that I'm not the only one interested in these pretty documents. She found them on Williams Sonoma Home, too! I was amazed that the date of 1753, is so close to the papers I have (1751-1818+)
