Pearl Border

English, circa 1840s

This pattern is offered with the cooperation of Hamilton-Weston Wallpapers in England, which holds the original document in its archive.


A string of pearls or beads was a popular motif in late 18th century French arabesques, but it was also found frequently in other patterns well into the 19th century. This very simple mid-19th century English border makes an appropriate trim for modestly-sized sidewall patterns in intimate settings. The small scale also makes it a good candidate for outlining doors, windows and other architectural elements.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat ⅝ inches, width 1 inch

Metric Measurements: 1.6 cm, 2.5 cm.
