M263c with small sheet deckle

The moulds have a GG monogram and irregularly spaced chain lines. They were used for the renowned Gwas Gregynog (Gregynog Press) in mid Wales. The irregular spacing may be to make the paper look antique. This mould has two deckles to make 388mm x 520mm x 2 and 388mm x 470mm x 2. The deckle for the smaller sheet size obstructs the watermarks but these may have been removed or relocated when this deckle was used.
