This pattern was created in the middle of the 19th century.
This pattern is related to the Serpentine in that both require the final step to be a single pass drawn in wavy lines. The 'wave' aspect can be applied to any base pattern whereas Muira suggests that a Serpentine base is always the same.
This pattern is created by starting with a Nonpareil base (or Wide comb, depending upon the desired size of the columns). Then a comb with one set of teeth is drawn across the bath vertically in a wavy line.
This sample is a second.
The primary colors for this medium grey paper are yellow, blue, grey, orange and white.
|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.|
