French circa 1830-35

Wallpaper designers often strove to evoke other materials in their patterns. In this example the use of thin tone-on-tone diagonal lines was intended to suggest the appearance of silk. (Another version of this pattern from the same time period enhances this effect by printing the leaves atop a set of irisť, or rainbow colored stripes.)

Also from the French firm of Jacquemart et Bernard, this pattern was among a group of French papers ordered in 1836 by President Andrew Jackson for his Nashville mansion, The Hermitage (see Hermitage Leaf Border and Hermitage Vine).

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by the Ladies Hermitage Association.
