Intro[edit]

Definition: en:A drawn marble pattern that is essentially a variation of the NONPAREIL MARBLE , the difference being that after the colors (black, blue, yellow, and red; or black, brown, yellow, and white) have been drawn by the stylus into wavy lines, they are then drawn with a comb, which is extendible in such a manner that it is made wider and narrower at intervals of 1/2 inch. This widening and narrowing is continued until the entire surface is crossed by this opening and closing comb, resulting in a pattern resembling the tail of a peacock.
