Handmade folder used to hold family documents. The folder is one of a group of twenty-one created by Olive Percival of Los Angeles, California. This folder's label, handwritten by Percival, indicates it held the school records of her great, great aunt Lydia Percival Freeman (1773-1830). The folder is made from a piece of floral wallpaper backed with brown paper embossed with a woven texture. The wallpaper is block-printed with a large pink tulip with yellow center and surrounded by smaller flowers block-printed in lavender, pink, two greens and white on white ground.
