Moses Grant Border

American (Boston), circa 1811-1817

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by Historic New England


This border was found installed in the kitchen of the Stephen Robbins House in East Lexington, Massachusetts.
The use of orange and black was a popular neo-classical color combination of the period. The naïve rendering of the image, while perhaps not intended for formal spaces, makes it an appropriate choice for a secondary room.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 3 ½ inches, width 2 ⅝ inches

Metric Measurements: 9.8 cm, 7 cm.
