Plymouth Medallion

American, circa 1820-1840

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


Medium-scale medallions used as a central motif were found in patterns from the 1820s to the 1840s. Most likely of American origin, this paper is quite representative of the period; it was found in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Its relatively modest size suggests that it would have been used for a bedroom or parlor, perhaps augmented by an elaborate French border or frieze.


Imperial Measurements: Repeat 16 inches, width 17 ⅞ inches, length 11 yards, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 40 cm, 45.4 cm, 10 m.
