Description

Fragment of floral wallpaper border. Wide border with four pattern bands. Uppermost band consists of thin pink stripes and a row of pink dots. Below it is a band of pink foliate scrolls. The third and widest band is swags of roses and morning glories in shades of pink and green. The swags hang from curls in the foliate scrolls above. The final band, running along the lower edge of the border, is a row of pink figures resembling fleur de lis in varying heights over narrow green and pink stripes. Roller-printed in two pinks, fuschia, three greens and white on liquid mica ground.
