|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Doubled comb pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe: Double comb|
Miura does not offer a separate name for this pattern; instead he includes an example of it when he illustrates the Nonpareil marble.
Maurer-Mathison: Double 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. This last step causes the numerous, arched lines to be broken into separate, arched columns.
The primary colors for this example are red, blue, white, yellow ochre and green.
