Prentiss House Border

French, circa 1820s

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The Farmers' Museum.


Construction of the Prentiss House in Cooperstown, New York, began in 1815. It was the Main Street home of John Holmes Prentiss, who served not only as a U.S. Representative but was also a newspaper publisher and the town’s postmaster. As would befit a citizen of his stature, the entry hall was decorated with an elaborate French ashlar pattern and trimmed with this fashionable border of foliage and peacock feathers.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 9 ⅜ inches, width 5 ¼ inches

Metric Measurements: 23.5 cm, 12.7 cm.
