A huge sheet of this "artistic watermarked paper" made by the Imperial Paper Mill at Oji in Japan. Tindale (Handmade Papers of Japan) comments on these beautiful specimen sheets and included to 20 smaller samples in the Tindale collection. Henry Morris owned this sheet and wrote to the curator of the Paper Museum in Japan about it and Naohiko Tsujimoto, Head Curator, answered that they had been looking for a sample of this size for their collection but could not find one. They were interested in obtaining this example (letter included). According to Tindale, all the plates that produced these specimens were destroyed in a fire in 1945.
