Here for sale is a fantastic rare early 20th Century paper dispenser which would have been used in a shop for wrapping paper which would have been supplied by the Lamson Paragon company. The prominent branding on the dispenser advertises the paper to potential customers.

The Lamson Paragon Supply Co was formed in 1889 in London and registered in 1902, manufacturers of specialities in stationery.

This has an ivory label with paper bag and wrapping specialists. Papercraft works, London NW9.


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. The metal bar is not original, but is a suitable replacement. There are historical wood worm holes on the back of the dispenser. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
