This set of two amazing lithographs was made between 1900-1910. Both pages have a Lithograph on the front and the back. The one page features eight different examples of Damask. It is a reversible figured fabric of silk, wool, linen or cotton with a pattern formed by weaving. Damasks are woven with one warp yarn and one weft yarn, usually with the pattern in warp-faced satin weave and the ground in weft-faced or sateen weave. The second page features Damascening - the art of inlaying different metals into one another - in metallic color. These Lithographs are quite rare. The term Damascening comes from a perceived resemblance to the rich tapestry patterns of damask silk. The Lithographs are very detailed and have Spanish descriptions. They would look even more beautiful when framed in simple frames.
