Watermark Form
Strasbourg lily
The Strasbourg lily watermark shows a shield with a fleur-de-lis surmounted by a crown. There are many variants of the Strasbourg lily motif used by papermakers in Strasbourg, and some variants have also been connected to South-West France from the mid-17th century onward.
Watermark and variant description
Strasbourg lily - variant A.4WR.e.a. Fleur-de-lis on a crowded shield. The central petal rounded. The crown has three bands, the central one being the broadest. Double horns flank the crown, on which there is a complex fleur-de-lis and leaves. Beside the horns are three-petalled flowers. The shield has side scrolls. Initials 4WR.
Additional notes
This example includes the monogram 'WR' below the shield and refers to the papermill of Wendelin Richel or Rihel, a printer and papermaker from Strasbourg in the 16th century.
