Description

Handmade folder used to hold family documents. The folder is one of a group of twenty-one created by Olive Percival of Los Angeles, California. This folder's label, handwritten by Percival, indicates it held the 1674 will of Gregory Wallerton of Hartford, Connecticut. The folder is made from a piece of floral wallpaper and lined with a piece of plain brown paper. The wallpaper is roller-printed with a pattern of small sprays of roses and morning glories with meandering stems on a white background with black dots. A sticker with an image of a bonsai tree in a pot and the initials O. P. is affixed to the inside of the folder.
