This wallpaper was used in the parlor of the King Caesar House in Duxbury, Massachusetts. It is a copy of an original French paper, although the pattern is reversed, as was typical when patterns were traced and copied. (The original French version is installed at Gore Place in Waltham, MA.) Fortunately, the American version was well-crafted, which is not always the case with copies.
The harlequin style leaf and stripe motif, on its own, reads as a graphic two dimensional pattern. By juxtaposing this element with a three dimensional column of leaves loosely bound with a decorative ribbon, the characteristics of both are enhanced. The strong verticality make it a fine choice for a hall, staircase or high ceiled parlor or dining room.
Reproduction of King Caesar Stripe was commissioned by Boscobel House and Gardens.
