Two wall fragments of scenery figure wallpaper. Swiss architectural figures frame scenic vignettes, one of a couple crossing a rustic timber bridge and the other of mountain goats on an outcrop over water with a village and mountains in the background. The water and mountains in this scene are colored using a rainbow or irise effect, dark blue-green water fades to lighter green water to light blue in the mountains. Block printed in black, three browns, three greens, peach, salmon, white, two blues and two grays on gray ground.
