“King Caesar” was the nickname of Ezra Weston II, one of America’s pre-eminent shipbuilders who operated in Duxbury, Massachusetts. This border was used to trim the King Caesar Stripe in the parlor of the Federal style home, completed for Weston and his wife, Jerusha, in 1809. The twisted vine around a multicolored rod echoes the ribbon and leaf stalk of the sidewall paper.

The reproduction of King Caesar Border was originally commissoned by Boscobel House and Gardens.
