Queen's Velvet Smooth Writing Paper by John Dickinson - 1950s

Queen's Velvet Writing Paper by John Dickinson. From the 1950s.
John Dickinson began his career as a stationer in the City of London in the 1800s and launched the eponymous paper brand after he patented his paper-making technique. [ The above image is of a pad of 40 Wedgwood sheets produced by the company and marketed under the "Queen's Velvet" sub-brand.]
[Image Description:  The image contains the cover page of a vintage notepad. The entire cover page is of blue colour with the brand name: "Queen's Velvet" in capitals in the upper portion, aligned to the centre. 
The brand name is embossed in dark gold colour along with a golden crown logo above it. Below the golden embossing of the brand name, the following text appears in white: "Velvet Smooth Writing Paper By John Dickinson" (capitalized). Aligned to the centre and placed at the bottom of the cover page, there is the text: "Wedgwood 40 Sheets" in white capitalized text.
The image below shows a few pages from the notepad. The pages have a bluish hue. In touch and feel, they are very smooth.]
