18th Century

These papers are examples of the papers produced during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The predomnant characteristic of these papers is the limited color palette: red, blue, yellow and green. Other colors were used, but much less frequently. The Dutch and combed patterns remained very popular throughout the history of marbling, becoming known as the Nonpareil pattern when made with other colors during the 19th century.
