    Wolfe: not listedMuira 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 base pattern is clearly visible in a blocked out area (16 x 15 cm.) in the center of the work, perhaps left bare (without the overlaid marbling) to provide a place for a calligraphy inscription. The base or first pattern is a combed Turkish marble with an Italian pattern over the top.The primary colors for this example are grey, black and yellow ochre. less
