2001.281.994 (RS196376)

Description

Partial roll of uncut wallpaper borders. The paper is printed with three narrow borders consisting of an orange stripe flanked by metallic gold bands on gray ground. One gold band, the one that would be the bottom edge of the border if it was hung, is slightly wider than the other and embossed with small arches against a ribbed background. A narrow black stripe runs below it. Approximately the first thirty inches of the roll has been cut with the remaining uncut.
