Period Paper is pleased to offer a sweet collection of vintage sheet music from the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's. Whether your interest is Big Band music, sentimental love songs, songs featured in the movies of the period, or you are simply looking for the unusual -- a unique original piece of framable art -- this collection has something for you! Please note that while the music is complete in these items, many of these pieces are in a condition that we generally avoid in other types of ephemera -- e.g. with tears, spine separation, chipping, signatures, etc. However, this is common for sheet music and it is obvious from their condition that these items were "well-loved" and we offer them with as clear a condition summary as possible.
