A fine parchment, at first specifically made from the skin of calves, though now kid, lamb or calf..

* Parchment has been used for millennia for written scrolls, then book pages and still today to leaf the slivers of beaten gold.

* For interior furnishings, vellum can be made into lampshades that soften and warm, suffusing electric light in a manner similar to candle light, also occasionally for edgings and for fine upholstery such as boxes, frames and screens.
