Floral medallion designs began appearing in
the 1820s and maintained popularity through
the 1850s. This fine example was discovered in
the family parlor of the Reasin Beall home, an
Adamesque style brick and stone structure in
Wooster, Ohio, built in 1826. Architectural
evidence and the absence of hand-joined seams
help date the manufacture and installation of
the paper to the late 1830s or early 1840s, at
which time the house was extensively remodeled
in the Greek Revival style. The document
colors of soft grey and creamy white are also
in keeping with the aesthetic of the period.
