Description

Partial rolls of reproduction wallpaper by Allen-Doane Company. Pattern is similar to the "Braintree Stripe" pattern by Katzenbach and Warren. The wallpaper has vertical stripes composed of six-pointed stars in circles alternating with stripes of a vine with feather-like leaves. Dividing these stripes are stripes with a geometric pattern. Screen-printed in gold, white, mauve and brown on an olive green ground. Pattern is based on a block-printed wallpaper found in the General Sylvanus Thayer Birthplace, Braintree, Massachusetts. The original wallpaper was said to have been hung in 1808 to celebrate Thayer's graduation from West Point. \n
