Berrien House Knotted Drapery

American, circa early 19th century

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by Andrew Berrien Jones - John Berrien House, Savannah, Georgia.


Construction of the Savannah house of Revolutionary veteran John Berrien was started in 1791; within a decade of its completion this decidedly graphic pattern was installed in a staircase. Like several other patterns from the Berrien House, this one shares both motif and structural aspects with papers from Philadelphia and therefore a similar attribute seems plausible. This first paper was later covered over with Berrien House Ribbon Trellis.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 19 ¼ inches, width 21 ¼ inches, length 11 yards, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 48.9 cm, 54 cm, 10 m.
