American (Janes & Bolles Collection) 1822-27

Adelphi's Janes & Bolles Collection is reproduced from the earliest known American wallpaper sample book, now in the collection of Old Sturbridge Village. It was produced by the firm of Janes & Bolles, which operated from 1822-1827 in Hartford, Connecticut. The sample book provides 22-inch square samples of each pattern, with alternate colorways for most of the patterns. Adelphi offers the Janes & Bolles papers in their original or in customized colorways.

Often compared to an early American coverlet, the engaging Circle Ornament pattern is one of Janes & Bolles most distinctive. The overall unified field lends itself well to either a high contrast colorway, as in the original blue on white, or more subtle tone-on-tone interpretations.

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by Old Sturbridge Village.
