|Title||Vintage 19th c. printed marbled paper, Italian on Turkish pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Italian on Turkish, Overprinted|
Historically, this is the oldest of Western marbled patterns and dates back to as early as the middle part of the 15th century.
Normally this pattern is created when one or more colors are thrown onto the surface of the bath using a marbling brush. The first colors thrown tend to constrict as other follow and become the 'vein' colors for the latter thrown inks. In this case first the Turkish, then the Italian pattern was printed using a lithographic process rather than being made on a bath.
The primary colors for this sample are light brown, medium brown and black.
|Collection Notes||The flat sample from which this photo was scanned is a salvaged endsheet. There is no record of the original item from which these endsheets were taken. Information regarding creation dates has therefore been estimated (using Wolfe), typically by century.|
