Only some envelopes

These are the last remaining vestiges of my old favorite Eaton Calais Ripple stationery that used to be sold everywhere as open stock in several colors, including pure white, an off-white, and a blue; and there may have been other colors. These envelopes surface every year because they're kept in a box of cheap valentines that were bought without envelopes. This paper was light in weight, with a beautiful texture and had a small-dimension diagonal laid pattern on it. The edges were deckled. This was wonderful paper for using with a fountain pen. The handsome Eaton laid paper is still sold as resume paper, with envelopes, but only but as 8.5 x 11 inches. Calais Ripple surfaces only as an occasional vintage item on eBay.
