English 1765

The surviving document for Chestertown Vine was found in the Buck-Bacchus Store, the oldest commercial building in Chestertown, Maryland (and also the home of Adelphi's Buck-Bacchus Border).  The building was constructed in 1735 by John Buck, a wealthy Devonshire, England merchant who expanded his business holdings in the colonies.  The building was purchased by William Bacchus in 1854, who used it as both a store and a residence.

The original document of this pattern shows it to be not only block printed but flocked. Adelphi's rendition replaces the flocked areas with distemper paint.  Since it is difficult to determine the exact color of the original flock, a tone-on- tone format has been selected as being appropriate for the time period.

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