Just over one pound total weight of c1940s-'60s vintage gift wrapping paper in an assortment of patterns and occasions. With this lot are papers in their original cellophane, full-sized, never cut sheets (some with duplicates), and smaller-sized pieces.

I am *guessing* that many/most are full sheets, but I don't want to take the time to individually measure and count. Please see the many pictures that show in detail just what is in this lot (there are more pictures below than what is shown at upper left). In most cases you can tell which are the incomplete sheets, but of course some of the larger sheets may only have a small chunk or panel cut from them.

Included are birthday, shower, wedding, and more, in a wide variety of pretty styles. My favorite is the ballerina paper (even with the creasing/wear it shows - see pics), but it's a tough choice. The silvery papers are delicate and beautiful, the Hallmark pieces are always lovely, and the novelty sprinkling cans in bright colors are amusing and eye-catching.

Some of the papers are nearly tissue-thin - for example, the child's paper in the 14th picture down. This has Mary, Mary Quite Contrary and Tom, Tom the Piper's Son, as well as other nursery rhyme characters, and may actually date to the 1930s. I think this is the oldest piece in the lot, and is not a full sheet. Other papers, especially the more expensive Hallmark sheets, are thick, glossy and creamy and of obviously high quality.

Overall condition is good to very good, but some pieces do have light creasing, yellowing or discoloration, or signs of age-related fading and/or edge wear, etc. Each piece of paper is not in perfect, like-new shape, but many sheets have no problems of any kind. I think all of this gift wrap is still very usable.

This is a variety lot to please the most devoted collector - it has something for almost everyone, and is great for collage work, scrapbooking and collecting, not to mention wrapping presents.
