Reproduction Wallpaper

2001.281.730.1-.4 (RS194552)

Description

Four unused samples of reproduction wallpaper in the "Dandelion Stripe" pattern by Katzenbach and Warren. Wallpaper has a vertical stripe pattern with two alternating stripes. One stripe has highly abstracted dandelion leaves atop two large solid stripes. The other is a highly abstracted eyelet lace motif. Both are roller-printed on a mottled or speckled background. Pattern is based on an American hand-blocked wallpaper found in the parlor of a house in Contoocook, NH which dates from 1810-1825. Two different colorways are present: 2001.281.730.1 and .2 -- Green, brown, beige and orange on a tan ground; and 2001.281.730.3 and .4 -- Blue, beige and brown on a tan ground.
