|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Italian on Turkish pattern, Double marble |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe: not listed|
Muira and Schleicher call this method of pattern building a Double marble.
Though related, a Double marble is not the same process as an 'Overprint' (Wolfe plate XXXVII 180).
The first instance of Double marbling was seen in the 17th century.
A Double marble is created when, after the first desired pattern is completed and the paper dried, the same paper is again treated with Alum and marbled with the second pattern over the top of the first.
In this case the first pattern was Turkish and the second (last) was an Italian marble.
The primary colors for this example are tan and green.
|Collection Notes||The flat sample from which this photo was scanned is a salvaged endsheet. There is no record of the original item from which these endsheets were taken. Information regarding creation dates has therefore been estimated (using Wolfe), typically by century. |
