Elephant watermark paper

Papers made in this tradition are durable, flexible and extremely versatile. They can be used by anyone for gift-wrapping, writing, drawing and painting. They are also used by craft-makers to produce books and binding, stationery and greeting cards, boxes, picture frames and so on. Paper also has many applications in architecture and interior design, such as wallpaper, screens, blinds and lampshades. By using techniques such as moulding and papier-mache one can make almost anything - vases, trays, jewellery, furniture and utilitarian products such as cartons and packaging. In fact, paper is such a versatile medium, its uses are only limited to the imagination... So Dream On!

Havell countermarks (hereafter "watermarks") are parallel to one of the longer edges. They read either
or
where 18xx is the year the paper was made (1825 to 1838). The Turkey Mill watermark is located at the edge of the sheet, while the Whatman watermark is more towards the middle. Because it is on the far edge of the paper, the Turkey Mill watermark is more likely to be trimmed. On occasion the mark is found slightly trimmed (for example, the bottom of the year missing) even when the sheet is what is considered to be full width.
