If only you knew how my armoires are brimming with shabby chic treasures here at the chateau! After 28 years of truffling for timeworn treasures in France it has been yet another full year of trawling the brocantes to see what morceau catches my eye.

I never sell reproductions or copies...only the real timeworn treasures I find on my truffling trips!! Voila mes belles!

Here is my blog for the latest news from the chateau www.simply-chateau.blogspot.com

THIS IS AN ORIGINAL PERIOD PIECE AND NOT A COPY

I am absolutely addicted to antique French hand written documents and manuscripts! I simply cannot bear to walk past them and always bring them home to list. The delicious old scripted hand writing and notaires office stamps make them wonderful display pieces.

Amazing when framed or could be used in any period project.

This stunning document is 306 years old! Signed . dated 1706-- Louis XIV the Sun king was on the throne. He reigned for 72 years.


This wonderful 4 page manuscript and paper is divine rough edged hand made parchment that has taken on a soft old creamy colour with age.. 3 pages are double sided script and the last page is one side only

It looks as if it is a record of property and land. It has stunning old script and wonerful scrolled and curled signatures.

The royal stamp carries a fabulous crown, plumes and scrolls. The pages are bound by old waxed twine at the edge.


The old sepia ink simply could not be reproduced, the tattered edges of this old paper make it such a tactile old treasure.


The maunscript measures 10" x 7"


An amazing old manuscript full of faded grandeur.

THIS IS A GENUINE PERIOD MAUNSCRIPT AND NOT A COPY
