|Title||Vintage 19th c. marble paper, Extra pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe: Extra|
This pattern was first created in the 19th century.
This pattern is similar to the British (Miura pg 51) and Spanish Drag (Wolfe plate XXXVI 167) patterns. The British pattern is distinguishable because of its strong tendency towards use of darker colors not associated with a regular Extra or Drag marble. The Spanish Drag is simply an Extra pattern with the addition of the gradated linear work, characteristic of the Spanish pattern.
This pattern is created by starting with a Turkish base then once the paper is laid onto the bath to be pulled it is dragged forward, elongating the spots.
The primary colors for this example are green, black, blue and white.
|Collection Notes||The flat sample from which this photo was scanned is a salvaged endsheet. There is no record of the original item from which these endsheets were taken. Information regarding creation dates has therefore been estimated (using Wolfe), typically by century.|
