Fragment of scenic wallpaper border from Maine. Wide border with multiple pattern bands. Band along the upper edge of the border consists of two repeating figures printed in browns and black, imitating a carved architectural molding. The band below it is a geometric pattern in blues, reds and green perhaps meant to imitate painted plaster. The central band consists of a landscape scene depicting a lake with mountains in the distance. The landscape is framed by short pilasters with acanthus leaves and scrolls. The pilasters hold up a ceiling band decorated with polygons and edged with a stripe of bead and reel trim. The last band, running along the bottom edge of the border, is a geometric floral pattern printed in blues, reds and green. Roller-printed in black, three browns, two blues, pink, red, three greens and metallic silver on ungrounded paper.
