|Title||Vintage 19th c. paste paper, daubed |
|Descriptive Notes||Loring: daubed paste paper.|
Historically, variations of daubed papers reached their height of popularity for book decoration in Spain and America between the middle of the 18th and 19th centuries.
This pattern is created when colored paste has been applied to a piece of sponge and then repeatedly daubed onto a clean piece of paper. In this case something small and rounded (not a piece of sponge) was used, creating the somewhat repetatively shaped pattern.
The primary color for this buff colored paper sample is medium brown.
|Collection Notes||This sample is taken from a book's slip case cover.|
The title has been written in ink on the front of the case.
