Writing tablets - wax tablets


Roman wax tablets

What an unusual feeling of writing! The cool stylus in your hand is itching letters and numbers right into the soft beeswax of the tablet. This way the Romans made notes, and the selection of inexpensive ancient wax tablets provided by the Römer-Shop enables you to witness even today the writing habits from long ago.

The Roman wax tablets are made in Germany by pure manual work. A carved wax tablet is reusable and can be smoothly erased and rewritten over and over again, using a stylus that is forged out of bronze, brass or iron. The Roman wax tablet was used for notes and messages till the high Middle Ages.Each single wax tablet is manufactured out of massive beechwood, then smoothly polished, and authentic beeswax is filled into the recess in the wood.

Write the way of the ancient world, using wax tablet and stylus


Many achievements of the ancient world are still in use. Some were also refined or adapted to modern demands. Thus the old Greeks had of course no computers, for example, but the wax tablet can be justfully called the precursor of the modern calculator.

Wax tablets - a successful history


Wax tablets and their proper writing tool, the stylus, were in the ancient world considered the standard business equipment: The wax tablet was established in ancient times as the ideal writing surface for simple notes or school exercises. Many twists and turns of Roman history would probably have been lost in darkness, if they had not been preserved on wax tablets that even today attest the ancient culture. The use of the wax tablet traces back to the 5th century B.C.
Using wax tablet and stylus is a veritable feast of writing, even today! Therefore, their rebirth has been invoked by people with a sense of the extravagant. Especially friends of antique cultures like to make use today of the unusual pair of wax tablet and stylus. They do not only feel very special, they even look decorative!
