Griffin House Sprig



In 1834 Eneral Griffin, an escaped African American slave, purchased a small, 1827 house near Hamilton, Ontario. Whether this paper was already installed at the time of sale or if it was hung soon after is unknown. A precise date is difficult as this was the period when mechanized printing methods began to appear. Certain aspects of the original document favor a roller printed origin over a block printed one; other characteristics give plausibility to the earlier technology.
Griffin House Sprig is our youngest version of the perennially popular pattern style. As with the others, this one is highly versatile and a good candidate for custom coloring…
