    The pattern was designed after engravings of Italy done by Bartolomeo Pinelli (1781 - 1835) in 1809. Among the scenes shown are the Arch of Constantine, the Arch of Drusus, and the Pantheon in Rome, and the Temple of Neptune at Paestum. Other vignettes include a bivouac, the Adoration of the Virgin, and a couple dancing the saltarello in front of the Temple of Castor and Pollux in the Forum. Dilys E.
