Description

Fragment of floral wallpaper border. This unused border fragment appears to have been die cut by the manufacturer along the bottom edge of the pattern. The border has an upper band of gray lozenges on green. Below it are gold panels on white. A dense and colorful array of flowers and foliage conceal the lower edges of the panels. The border is trimmed along the lower edge of the flowers. The upper edge of the border is untrimmed, the die-cut outline of the absent border above is present. The border is roller-printed in black, metallic gold, two grays, light orange, green, two blues, two reds, ochre, white and metallic gold on thin white ground.
