Antique Italian Vellum Books Set, Early 1800's
A gorgeous set of eight extremely rare antique Italian vellum books, early 1800's.
These ancient Italian books are exquisite in their remarkable nature as well as their breathtakingly beautiful appeal enhanced by the process of ageing. They derive from Naples, Italy and date from the early 19th century, covered in vellum with faded ink hand writing on some of the covers as well as the interior of the books. They are timeworn to perfection making them in my opinion "a jewel in the crown" of interior decorating as they are a truly magnificent addition to any stylish and unique interior, classical or contemporary. They could be displayed in infinite ways and even serve as bases or stands for other treasures [as shown in the last image of this listing]. Each book measures about 17 x 10 cm or approximately 6.7 x 2.9 inches with different thicknesses. They are in lovely distressed antique condition with signs of ageing that only bring forward their true beauty and splendour today and exactly as I discovered them. For the full condition please refer to the images!
These are outstanding antique treasures!
