Volute

French or American circa 1840-45

Description

Although this paper was discovered in the stair hall of the Hancock-Wirt-Caskie House in Richmond, Virginia, the design is related to a large category of patterns in the Bibliotheque Forney, which are generally referred to as “Volutes” (meaning spiral). With their scrolling foliates they reflect the influence of the Renaissance Revival. A color scheme of cinnamon set against ochre is typical of the 1840s palette.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 20 1/4 inches, width 20¾ inches, length 11 yards, half-drop match.

Metric Measurements: 50.8 cm, 52.7 cm, 10 m.
