Parson Smith Pillar and Arch

English, 1760-1770

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


Perhaps our favorite of this type of pattern, the Parson Smith document has a fluidity absent from many pillar and arch designs. Though the fragments were discovered in a closet of the South Windham residence these were obviously leftovers from the another space, most likely the hallway.

NOTE: With this pattern clients should expect some areas with slight misalignments of design when installing. This is typical of large 18th century patterns which require multiple blocks to complete the repeat.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 42 ½ inches, width 21 ½ inches, length 11 yards, half-drop match.

Metric Measurements: 108 cm, 54.6 cm, 10 m.
