Happy Holidays School of Napkin Folding – Day 10

It would be interesting to find out the history behind some of these folds. This next napkin fold is called “The Pyramid”. I wonder if this fold originated in 1922 when Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb or had it been around under another name and was just renamed to celebrate the discovery? Themed parties and card parties were very popular up until the 1940s so it could have been renamed to go with a particular decorating theme. If anyone has any information about this let me know.
