Reveillon Arabesque 810

French, 1789

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by Johns Hopkins University


The reproduction of this pattern was commissioned by the Homewood Museum at Johns Hopkins University; the original document is in their collection. While many double repeating arabesques – those with two veritical rows of the pattern per width of paper – use a modest number of colors this one incorporates 14 colors printed with 24 blocks. The long repeat would show to best advantage in a high ceiled room or stair hall.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 42 ½ inches, width 21 ¼ inches, custom length, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 108 cm, 54 cm.
