Drawing 17 – Guilloche Border




Guilloche Border


  • Dimensions: 204 x 170 mm
  • Initials: JNA
  • Artist: Unknown
  • Not published in TBAG
  • Comments: This drawing of the mosaic circles confirms one of Charles Playne's comments in TBAG. He noted that the background colour of the inner circle (the one with the leaves) was a "dull red", not the yellow or green shown by Lysons or later illustrators. On the 1880 drawings it is shown as a reddish colour.
