Floral medallion designs began appearing in the
1820s and maintained popularity through the 1850s. This fine example
was discovered in the family parlor of the Reasin Beall home, an
Adamesque style brick and stone structure in Wooster, Ohio, built in
1826. Architectural evidence and the absence of hand-joined seams help
date the manufacture and installation of the paper to the late 1830s or
early 1840s, at which time the house was extensively remodeled in the
Greek Revival style. The document colors of soft grey and creamy white
are also in keeping with the aesthetic of the period.
