Watermark

Albrecht DÜRER
The Assumption and Coronation of the Virgin 1510 (watermark)
Watermark Form
Fish Bladder (IM countermark)

References
Meder 309. At the time of manufacture the Fish Bladder watermark appeared on one half of the freshly made sheet of paper and the IM countermark appeared on the other half. Since Dürer occasionally cut sheets in half to make prints of a modest scale, the watermark would appear on the paper of one print and the countermark on another.
