Large paper-parchment from the world famous CANSON-MONTGOLFIER manufacture, created in 1557 in Annonay, France. Please read carefully details hereafter, because one should not expect to receive an ordinary vellum parchment made of one single large skin.
This parchment is entirely made out of mixed domestic animal skins (goat, calf, pig). The process of manufacture is similar to paper except that the pulp used is not vegetal but animal. The animal origin is obvious from the unmistakable smell of a burning sample piece. It is NOT made out of one single processed animal skin.
The secret CANSON-MONTGOLFIER process enabled the final resulting product to be a thin sheet which distinctly shows the MONTGOLFIER watermark (see photos).
We think all sheets to be more than 100 years old.
We are the only ones to supply this type of large real parchment on :
60 cm x 48.5 cm (= 23.62” x 19.09”),ready to be used.
The diagonal is 75 cm (= 29.53”).
200 sheets were available.
May be used for writing, painting, lamp shading, art, liturgy and religious ceremonies, etc.
This type of parchment, new and never used, is not available anywhere now.
It is a natural product, and therefore subject to irregular surface or aspect, inherent to its nature.
The manufacturing process makes each sheet unique, although extremely similar to any other one.
Variations in humidity and other factors may have some impact on this product, as is normal for real skin parchment, but overall, it will be much more stable, sturdy and resistant than plain paper, under any circumstances.
All sheets will be shipped rolled. Upon arrival, its curl is easy to remove and no unsightly fold will be left in the material fibers.
Upon request a small set of 2 samples about 9" x 4" each (or 22 cm x 12 cm) maybe sent anywhere in the world for a nominal $10 fee, covering handling and shipping. See item # 281069084078 at
