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.
This sample is a second.
The primary colors for this light blue paper sample are blue, red 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.|
