Wallpaper Border or Frieze

2001.281.962 (RS195167)

Description

Fragment of Art Nouveau-style wallpaper border or frieze with flowering vine pattern. Equally spaced green stems grow upward from the bottom of the border, each with a yellow blossom in profile and two three-lobed green leaves against a red background. The vines rise and intertwine along the top of the border where an outward facing yellow flower blooms between each plant. Dark red, stylized strapwork and trefoil figures rise from the bottom of the border behind the vines. Dark red horizontal bands run along the top and bottom of the border. Roller-printed in dark red, yellow, tan and two greens on red ground. Fragment is affixed to a piece of heavy stock paper.
