Hello. This is not a border. It is a sidewall pattern. Also, the catalog references a related paper from 1970 which this paper is a reproduction of. It would be helpful if this related paper from 1970 were also visible online. Warm regards.

Thank you for your comment, Mr. Kelly.
You are correct that this paper was mis-catalogued as a border. I have updated its record.
The paper from which this was reproduced is available in our Collections Access Portal. You can see it here:

Thank you again for your comment and correction.
Sincerely,
