West St. Mary’s

English, circa 1765

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.


This wallpaper has been reproduced from worn fragments discovered in West St. Mary’s City, Maryland; the original document is part of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation collection. The wallpaper designer borrowed heavily from textile motifs, as was often the case during this portion of the 18th century. Cross hatching inside s-scroll ribbons gives the appearance of lace.

The coloring of the paper is also typical of the period: stone colors with heavy reliance on black, white and grey were standard in England, despite the availability of brighter colors.

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 42 inches, width 21 ¼ inches, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 106 cm, 54 cm, 10 m.
