|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Dahlia pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe: Not listed|
The pattern was created during the end of the 19th century.
The pattern is created by starting with a Zebra base. Next according to Miura, another color mixed with ox gall is thrown onto the bath. Then a second color is then 'swirled' through a sieve onto the bath. As a final step, a third color is then lightly sprinkled onto top, creating flower-like patterns to occur which are reminiscent of the Dahlia.
The primary colors for this example are blue (dark, medium and light), red and yellow.

This book has endsheets which match the covers.
The text block is dated 1644, however the binding and endsheets are not contemporary with the text but are of a later period, probably the late 19th century (Muria).
