Combed Patterns

Acrylic paint on vellumed paper

These papers are examples of the papers produced during the mid-late nineteenth century. They are all variants on the Nonpareil pattern, combed either with a fine comb or a large comb. Additional combing with what is known as a Bouquet comb on either a small or large Nonpareil pattern results in the two Bouquet patterns shown.
