Fancy Sprig

American, probably Boston, circa 1785-1795

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


This pattern, a rather more elaborate rendition of sprigs, or variations of it, were obviously popular during the late 18th century; we know of at least three versions, most likely printed by different companies. Two use three printed colors, the third with just two.

Our reproduction of Fancy Sprig was commissioned by the Mount Vernon Ladies Association to be installed in the Lafayette Room.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 5 ⅛ inches, width 21 ½ inches, length 11 yards, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 13 cm, 54 cm, 10 m
