A flocked version of this flowering vine with
diaper pattern is found in a bedroom of the 1752 Webb House in
Wethersfield, Connecticut. It is supposed to have been hung in 1781 in
preparation for a visit from George Washington, although that date is
perhaps late for this pattern.
The use of such a very large pattern in a small
bedroom with low ceiling is surprising in the original setting,
although the effect is impressive. Adelphi's version of this very fine
pattern reproduces the original pattern and scale, but without flocking.
