Boston Floral Stripe – Patrick Mele Colorway

American (Boston), circa 1790-1800


Adelphi Paper Hangings asked designer Patrick Mele to create custom colorways for five historical wallpapers.                 Read more about Patrick Mele and what inspired him to create the colorways. 

Found lining an early box from New Hampshire, this pattern was printed with a very small block measuring approximately 10″ x 10.” This indicates a very early date and American origin, most likely from Boston. Adelphi offers it in its original colorway of white printed on a deep Prussian blue ground. Narrow stripe patterns such as this are best used in bedrooms and back parlors and complimented with a narrow 18th century border.



Imperial Measurements: Repeat 10 ⅝ inches, width 22 inches, length 11 yards, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 27. cm, 55.8 cm, 10 m.
