Antique stationery

Writing like in ancient Rome and Egypt

What an experience! Antique, hand-made papyrus from Egypt or a genuine antique quill, parchment made from goat or sheep skin and an economical alternative to a notebook: the Roman wax tablet and matching Roman writing pens.

"Telling the truth is the same as writing beautifully. This is only achieved by practice, it is less a matter of will than of habit, and I do not think it would be useless to take every opportunity to opportunity to manifest and form this habit."

Marc Aurelius (121 - 180) - Translation, edited by Dr. E. H. Schmitt and Dr. A. Skarva

The lovingly and authentically designed products from the Römer-Shop have been accompanying me for years and even decades in the field of ancient representation. As a centurion in a Roman military unit until a few years ago, the stationery, from wax tablets to papyrus scrolls, was extremely helpful for high-quality appearances and presentations at museum festivals, in reenactment and in museum education work.

The everyday equipment with glasses and ceramics is also really well made and has survived the hard life of a soldier well. In general, the range of products is truly sensational and offers unique products from the Roman era for many age groups and requirements, from hardcore legionnaires to little Roman fans of primary school age.

Hello and thank you very much for the great products!

Our students were thrilled with the papyrus coloring pictures and the scarabs. As promised, I am sending you photos of the work with the coloring pictures. I wrote a review for the "scarab" coloring picture, but it can also be added to all the other pictures, since we had different motifs.

The card is easy to work with and the cardboard is sturdy enough for such projects. Perhaps small cast figures and horses on a plastic base would be a useful addition to the shop, rather than the cardboard pictures. My 12-year-old son had fun making something like that
