|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled papers, Double comb waved pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe: Double comb waved|
Miura: Wave (Miura distinguishes whether it is a Small or a Large Wave marble)
According to Muira this pattern was created in the middle of the 19th century.
This pattern is similar in final appearance to Miura�s Serpentine marble. Wolf suggests that any base pattern with the same final undulating step be called �waved� however Miura suggests that the base pattern should be a Nonpareil.
This pattern is created by first making a standard Nonpareil pattern. Once this is done, a final comb with one set of teeth set in wider intervals than was used in the Nonpareil is drawn once more through the bath in a wavy line. For Muira�s distinction, the width of the teeth intervals used in the final step would determine whether he called it Small or Large Wave.
The primary colors for this example are red, blue, orange and white.
