|Studio Name||Cockerell |
|Date||20th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Muira: Serpentine on Bouquet marble|
Wolfe: Wide comb waved on Peacock pattern.
This is a Cockerell pattern which like others from this company lack documentation with regards to any in-house pattern names.
This pattern is created by first completing a Bouquet (Peacock) pattern as Muira describes it. Then a comb with one set of teeth set in wide intervals would be drawn through the bath once vertically in an exaggerated, undulating wavy line.
The primary colors for this example are dark blue, green, red and white.
