Urns and Medallions

French, circa 1790-1810


Although found covering an American made bandbox, the Urns & Medallion pattern was most likely printed in France between 1790 and 1810. Not only does this mid-scale paper include the neoclassical motif of urns placed in a formal frame, typical of French patterns of the period, but it employs a cross diagonal structure not unlike other and larger patterns of the post Revolutionary period. The original blue, white and black colors on an intense red ground combine with a dimensionality used widely at this time.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 10 ½ inches, width 21 ¼ inches, length 11 yards, straight match.
