DuPont manufactured the celluloid with the striped pattern. Earlier Vacs were made out of solid rod stock. The reflectivity of the pearlescent material had to do with its orientation as the material cured. Maximum pearlescence would thus be visible only from two sides and minimum 90 degrees off from that. Later Vacs were made from flat stock wrapped around a mandrel, so max pearlescence went all the way around.
