Unused sample of reproduction wallpaper in the "Robbin's House" pattern by Waterhouse Wallhangings, Inc. Wallpaper has all-over geometric pattern of overlapping fans with frothy edges. Pattern is a reproduction of a block-printed paper dating from 1790-1815 that was found in a Nantucket, MA house. The house has no known relationship to the Robbins family. Original paper was probably American in origin.
