|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Muira: not listed|
Schleicher and Maurer-Mathison: Feather[S, DM] marble ( [S, DM] to distinguish between this and Muira's version of a Feather pattern).
This pattern is created by starting with a vertical Nonpareil base. Once completed a comb with one set of teeth would be drawn across the bath twice horizontally, once in either direction with the second pass halving the first. These passes cause parallel bands to appear whose interiors resemble the edges of spread out feathers.
The primary colors for this buff colored paper sample are grey, brown, yellow ochre, red and blue.
|Collection Notes||This sample is a flat sample from amongst a box of samples Guyot would have used to monitor his inventory and pattern types for his company, Colophon.|
