Van Cortlandt Border

French, 1820s

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The Society of the Colonial Dames in the State of New York.


This border is typical of fashionable French designs of the period. It was found in the dining room of Frederick Van Cortlandt’s home in the Bronx, NY, where it framed the Van Cortlandt Rosette. Printed with twelve colors, the result is a highly detailed and three dimensional image which contrasts with the more subtle, but no less impressive, sidewall pattern.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 9 ⅝ inches, width 5 ⅛ inches

Metric Measurements: 24.4 cm, 13 cm.
