Coffered Rosette French, circa 1800

Architectural patterns such as the Coffered Rosette, which today might seem to be intended for a ceiling, were, in the 19th century, typically used as a sidewall paper for a large public space, such as a hall or stairway.

The original document for Adelphi's reproduction of this pattern was found covering the lid of a well-used wooden box. At first look the colors appeared to be a soft salmon and dull red around the rosette, but after close examination it turned out to be a very bright pink and an equally confident red. These colors are very similar to those in the Anthemion Border, which dates from approximately the same period.

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Reproduction of this pattern was commissioned by the Dumbarton House, Washington, DC.
