Item details

Genuine Vintage Gold Foil Embossed Orange Paper Scraps. This Scrap is 6cm x 5.5 cm {2.36 x 2.16 inches}. Beautifully detailed Venetian Background showing Saint Marks's Square from the Lagoon. The Gondola in the foreground is complete with Gondalier and Passengers. This style of Scrap is known as a Dresden because of the German town which was the prime producer of this type of paper. They are famous for the all the small lovely embossed details evident in this sticker.

These particular scraps were used by a Brisbane Confectioner [Australia] to decorate boxes of chocolates and/or candy in the earlier half of the 20th Century. I am not sure of the original purchase/manufacture dates but the lolly factory operated from 1919 with old Paper Scrap stock from Websters Confectionary Department. The Scraps were found in a disused storeroom and given to me when the family closed the factory in 2008. The photos of the back of the Scraps show the age of the paper. I have used all the scraps I need and am offering the excess to fellow enthusiasts.
