Spectrum Series

The Spectrum Series covers a broad range of geometric patterns and abstract flower designs. It’s actually unknown which patterns belonged to the Spectrum group, although collectors generally include designs in the B-3xx series, Multi-Flori California, and Tahiti. The Spectrum family name was identified from magazine ads produced around 1936-37.
