Lilac Border

French circa 1810-1825


The width of borders began to increase as the 19th century progressed. The Lilac Border is an excellent example of what was referred to as an “elegant” border in advertisements of the time. It was found accompanying Adelphi’s Toile de la Fontaine on panels from a folding screen purchased in Paris.
