Film Notes

Remarkable as showing the power of Kinemacolor to reproduce accurately the smallest details of color in any object. The film shows a lady choosing wallpaper; she is holding a piece of rose satin paper which she wishes to match. The hand of the shopkeeper, as he turns over the patterns, is very perfectly reproduced.

The patterns appear on the screen with striking accuracy. Even the silvery glaze on several of the papers is shown; the colors of a peacock in one pattern, and of a rose in another, are most realistic.
