This is a more modern pattern having been created at the beginning of the 20th century.
This pattern is a variation of the (typical) Icarus marble.
This pattern is created by starting with a Wide comb (Arch) base. Then a comb with one set of teeth set at somewhat wide intervals would have been drawn through the bath twice vertically, once in either direction. Next that comb would have been drawn through the bath horizontally in one direction. Finally the comb would be drawn once vertically from the top of the trough to the bottom in a wavy line.
This sample is a second.
The primary colors for this light blue paper sample are blue, black, light brown, orange and white.
|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. |
