ANTIQUE WATERCOLOR PAINT BLOCKS / CAKES

From The 1800's

      Before there were tubes of paint, watercolors were offered in easily moistened dry blocks of color.
      Some artists still find that these are more convenient to use.
      These are unused blocks of paint- it is amazing that they still exist
