Jefferson Trellis

French, circa 1820s

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.


Thomas Jefferson’s records of purchases for his Virginia home, Monticello, clearly indicate that French wallpapers, were ordered for several rooms. However, today it is only the North Octagonal Room for which any discernable evidence of a wallcovering exists and this is only in “ghost” images – areas where pigments bled through the paper and onto the plaster.

This information, though faint, was clear enough to identify the pattern as one which also exists in the archives of Colonial Williamsburg. First printed in the 18th century, the pattern was later reprinted by the French wallpaper firm Jacquemart et Bernard in the 19th century.
