American probably Boston, circa 1790-1800

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The Trustees of Reservations

Description

The delicately undulating vine design which still lines a bedchamber closet at The Old Manse in Concord, Massachusetts, was installed between 1790 and 1800. The house was built by Reverend William Emerson, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s grandfather, and his wife Phoebe who chose this wallpaper for the upstairs bedchamber. Later, when writer Nathaniel Hawthorne and his wife Sophia lived at the Old Manse, they repapered the room, but left this paper untouched in the closet, where it still hangs to this day.
