Rare Patterns and Shapes

In this online exhibition the term “considered rare” has been used to denote patterns, or shapes, or combinations of patterns and shapes, which are not commonly found.  Usually less than thirty examples have been recorded. The classification of any pattern or shape so designated may change as research continues.
