The No. 8 Peacock pattern is marbled with oxide red, orange, black, metallic gold and copper, on black paper.
First created in the late 18th century, a Peacock pattern starts with a Nonpareil base where colours are tapped onto the bath and then combed twice horizontally and once vertically. Lastly, the Nonpareil base is combed in wavy lines with a two-teethed comb vertically.
Peacock is also called Pfauen, Plume de Paon, Queue de Paon, and Bouquet.
