Blanchard Ashlar

Probably French, circa 1810-1825

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by Historic New England


One mark of a successful block printed pattern is when multiple design characteristics are rendered with just a few blocks. In the case of this ashlar (originally installed in the Medford, Massachusetts home of Andrew Blanchard) not only are the tools of dimensionality – bright highlights and accompanying shadows – depicted, but the nearly geologically accurate marbling is evident. And with only 3 print blocks!

As with other ashlars, this one is was intended for entry halls and staircases.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 17 ¼ inches, width 18 ¾ inches, length 11 yards, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 43.8 cm, 47.6 cm, 10 m.
