Chevron and Laurel

French, circa 1820-1830


This pattern was discovered hanging in the broad entry hall of a Greek Revival farmhouse in Schuylerville, New York. Of French origin, the pattern dates from about 1825. Unlike the other patterns found in the same house (Adelphi’s Grapevine Frieze and Greek Key Border), it was not stamped with a maker’s mark, although it is very much in the robust neoclassical style of DuFour (at this period known as DuFour et LeRoy).

The dramatic scale and bold motifs of geometric chevrons balanced by scrolling laurels make this an excellent choice for entry halls, stair cases or spacious dining rooms.

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

Metric Measurements: 48.3 cm, 48.3 cm, 10 m.
