Hermitage Maple Leaf

French, circa 1830-1835

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by the Ladies Hermitage Association.


Wallpaper designers often strove to evoke other materials in their patterns. In this example the use of thin tone-on-tone diagonal lines was intended to suggest the appearance of silk. (Another version of this pattern from the same time period enhances this effect by printing the leaves atop a set of irisé, or rainbow colored stripes.)

From the French firm of Jacquemart et Bernard, this pattern was among a group of French papers ordered in 1836 by President Andrew Jackson for his Nashville mansion, The Hermitage (see Hermitage Leaf Border and Hermitage Vine).

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

Metric Measurements: 45.7 cm, 45.7 cm, 10 m.
