A tenth addition of Dennison's Imported Tissue (crepe) Paper catalog. Exact date of the book is not known but guessing about 1896. This is a sample catalog with a group of small pieces of sample colored crepe paper attached. Each paper is numbered for selection when ordering. I might add, a nice assortment of colors.
The book consist of 144 pages of delightful samples to tantalize the eye. Price list and some directions included for flowers. Categories feature lamp shades for banquet and piano lamps, lamp and doll screens, electric light shades, and candle shades. Paper flowers, pen wipes, baskets and paper lanterns. Easter novelties, picture frames, and boxes. Crepe paper dresses for dolls, bisque and jointed. All so interesting and so elaborate.
Size of the book: 5-3/4" x 8-3/4".
Condition: No front or back covers. Dogeared corners to pages. Some foxing. No torn or missing pages. A wonderful reference book on crepe paper crafts of the period. I believe this book might be rather hard to find.
