We found a fragment of this paper in the stair hall of our house in New Hampshire - 18"w x 9"h (underneath the floorboards). Is there any other information about its source or date?

I'm afraid we do not have any more information on that particular pattern - American made, around 1830-1840. Nancy Carlisle, Senior Curator of Collections
