Tiger Eye

The Tiger Eye pattern was introduced around 1845, in Germany. It is one of a number of patterns that developed in the early 19th century. The chief charactarestic of this and other patterns discussed on other pages (Shell, Stormont, Schrotel and others) is that a chemical of one kind or another is added to the paint to bring about its particular effect. In the case of Tiger Eye, one or several chemicals are added. The particulars of this pattern are discussed under Research. Tiger Eye has always been a striking and popular pattern, but less common because it is so difficult to do.
