Palmette Border

Possibly American, circa 1860-1880

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


Originally a machine printed pattern, this border, with clearly deliniated areas of color, lends itself to being block printed. The document colorway is subtle but more a more active . . .yet cohesive trim can easily be achieved by employing a brighter palette.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 2 ¼ inches, width 2 ⅜

Metric Measurements: 5.7 cm, 6 cm.
