This wallpaper has been reproduced from worn
fragments discovered in West St. Mary's City, Maryland; the original
document is part of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation collection.
The wallpaper designer borrowed heavily from textile motifs, as was
often the case during this portion of the 18th century. Cross hatching
inside s-scroll ribbons gives the appearance of lace.
The coloring of the paper is also typical of the
period: stone colors with heavy reliance on black, white and grey were
standard in England, despite the availability of brighter colors.
This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings
by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
