|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Spanish moiré on Turkish pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Spanish moiré on Turkish |
This pattern is a variation of a (typical) Turkish where the addition of the Spanish effect alters the overall look of the Turkish element.
The pattern is created by first making an Turkish pattern. As the paper is laid onto the bath to pull up the pattern, it is agitated back and forth in the manner used for any Spanish pattern, causing the characteristic gradated lines to appear.
The primary colors for this example are blue, gray, gold, and light green.
|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.|
