Notes: Lamelle is French for laminated.

Lamelle pieces are most often two color combinations with a black pin line inner-rim border –usually white or ivory with another laminated color. The laminated colors include rose-beige (Rouge Lamelle), periwinkle blue (Lune Lamelle), "Olde Parchment" yellow (Colorido Lamelle), beige (Cafe Au Lait Lamelle) and ivory (Ivory Lamelle).
