This pattern was discovered hanging in the broad
entry hall of a Greek
Revival farmhouse in Schuylerville, New York. Of French origin, the
pattern dates from about 1825. Unlike the other patterns found in the
same house (Adelphi's Grapevine
Frieze and Greek
Key Border), it was not
stamped with a maker's mark, although it is very much in the robust
neoclassical style of DuFour (at this period know as DuFour et LeRoy).
The dramatic scale and bold motifs of geometric chevrons balanced by
scrolling laurels make this an excellent choice for entry halls, stair
cases or spacious dining rooms.
