The overall condition is good or better and most items have been carefully removed from old scrapbook pages. As grading is subjective, please look at scan for faults/defects. The item was scanned while in plastic sleeves in order to protect it from damage while going through the scanning process. Item can be safely removed from these sleeves to be used however you choose to do so.
My items are always OLD and ORIGINAL. Don't be tricked or confused by sellers who fail to list the age of their items and do be aware that items being sold marked "Made in Germany" or "France" can be purchased NEW today as reproductions and that they are widely available.
Victorian lithograph scrap material serves as a historical record of the past and takes us back to a time that seems somehow simpler and less complex than today. Today's strong interest in scrapbooking is but a step back into the way our ancestors viewed their world around them and their attempts to put beauty into their everyday lives. Beautiful embossed images of rosy cheeked children, bouquets of floral wonderment, exotic animals and wonderful heartfelt snippets of warm prose sentiments filled the colorful pages of the treasured scrapbooks that women of that time compiled with care.
Offered in my listings are the genuine scrap pieces, carefully removed from the pages of such books, circa 1890 - 1910. The reproductions of today, do not compare to the charm of these old bits of long cherished beauty. With these bits of magic, take a trip down memory lane and create memories of your own!
Wonderful for todays scrapbooking as well as other projects.
