Réveillon Border

French (Paris), circa 1780

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.


This border was used with Réveillon Damask and is most certainly also a Réveillon product. The architectural aspects of the motifs were intended to imitate stucco or carved plaster work and were generally printed with tone-on-tone colors such as stone or grisaille. First developed in the 1760s, this manner of ornamentation remained popular throughout the remainder of the 18th century.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 3 inches, width 2 ½ inches

Metric Measurements: 7.6 cm, 6.4 cm.
