Fireboard paper framed with wallpaper border and backed with fabric. The pattern, which has lost most of its pigment, is a large oval medallion with diamond center made up of bands of scrolling lines, scrolling foliate vines, and other geometric shapes. Block-printed in green and white on gray ground. The border paper is mostly lost. It appears to have been a block-printed green and white floral pattern with black pin-dots and gray stripes running along the edges.
