|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe :Wide comb drawn pattern.|
Muira :Arch drawn (combed) marble.
This pattern is created starting with a Turkish base, probably where the colors were dropped onto the bath sequentially. A comb with one set of teeth set in somewhat narrow intervals is drawn across the bath twice horizontally, once in either direction with the second pass halving the first. Then another comb whose teeth are set at much wider intervals is drawn through the bath once vertically causing the arches to form. In this example, after the Wide comb pattern was completed a stylus or comb would have been drawn through the bath in various directions leaving the arches to be pulled into directional paths.
This sample is a second.
The primary colors for this blue paper example are blue, white, black and yellow.
|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.|
