This set is a wonderful addition for any serious collector. These paints are made by Winsor & Newton and are among some of their earliest tubes, id guess mid to late 19th century. One characteristic of this is the fact that most of the tubes in this set only have the color title and W&N logo, there is no color strip at the top of the tubes.Vermilion (SOFT and CAP COMES OFF). Deep Chrome (TUBE HARD, CAP STUCK). Orange Chrome (Soft, cap stuck).
Cobalt Blue (Soft cap stuck). Ivory Black Soft, tube is punctured! Most of the other tubes in the set are earth colors such as burnt sienna, ochres etc.
Or "New Blue" (ultramarine blue). A couple tubes are punctured and wrapped in plastic wrap. I believe the Ivory Black might be genuine due to the age and I have swatched it against modern bone black.Genuine ivory on the right, notice how it is warmer. This is a characteristic of genuine ivory black. Some tubes are hard, some are soft. If you have any specific questions- please ask! Includes palette, empty linseed and turpentine glass bottles and vintage brushes and palette knife.
Most of the brushes arent of much use, but I have pictured one of the old brushes that is beautiful and likely could still be used. This set poses possibility both for use as well as display/ collectors purposes.
