Tussie-Mussie Trellis

English, circa 1790


Designed and printed with the ever popular format of light color mirroring dark on a medium ground – white and black on grey in this case – Tussie Mussie Trellis creates a striking sense of structural depth, primarily in the shadows of the honeycomb trellis.

Fragments of this pattern were discovered in the hall of the country home of General Philip Schuyler – built in 1777 – in what is now Schuylerville, New York. Our reproduction was commissioned by the Saratoga National Historical Park. A 1998 report on wallpapers in the home ascribes 1791 as the installation date.
