Adelphi's Janes & Bolles Collection is
reproduced from the earliest known American wallpaper sample book, now
in the collection of Old Sturbridge Village. It was produced by the
firm of Janes & Bolles, which operated from 1822-1827 in
Hartford, Connecticut. The sample book provides 22-inch square samples
of each pattern, with alternate colorways for most of the patterns.
Adelphi offers the Janes & Bolles papers in their original or
in customized colorways.
Often compared to an early American coverlet, the
engaging Circle Ornament pattern is one of Janes & Bolles most
distinctive. The overall unified field lends itself well to either a
high contrast colorway, as in the original blue on white, or more
subtle tone-on-tone interpretations.
This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper
Hangings by Old Sturbridge Village.
