Webb House Damask

English, circa 1770-1780

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Connecticut.


A flocked version of this flowering vine with diaper pattern is found in a bedroom of the 1752 Webb House in Wethersfield, Connecticut. It is supposed to have been hung in 1781 in preparation for a visit from George Washington, although that date is perhaps late for this pattern.

The use of such a very large pattern in a small bedroom with low ceiling is surprising in the original setting, although the effect is impressive. Adelphi’s version of this very fine pattern reproduces the original pattern and scale, but without flocking.

NOTE: With this pattern clients should expect some areas with slight misalignments of design when installing. This is typical of large 18th century patterns which require multiple blocks to complete the repeat.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 72 inches, width 21 inches, length 11 yards, half-drop match.

Metric Measurements: 182.9 cm, 53.3 cm, 10 m.
