Description

Partial roll of reproduction wallpaper in the "Dandelion Stripe" pattern by Katzenbach and Warren. Wallpaper has a vertical stripe pattern with two alternating stripes. One stripe has highly abstracted dandelion leaves atop two large solid stripes. The other is a highly abstracted eyelet lace motif. Both are printed on a mottled or speckled background. Roller-printed in peach, cream, green and brown on a light green ground. Pattern is based on an American hand-blocked wallpaper dating from 1810-1825 that was found in the parlor of the Hoyt house in Contoocook, NH. \n
