Re: stippling / dot matrix
The dots or stippling was done by the engraver of the copper plate from which the pattern was taken, using a punch and hammer. Very painstaking work, a pattern could take weeks or months to engrave. See Richard Halliday's excellent article on this site, "Copper plate engraving, Process documentation", for a complete look at the process.
