American (Janes & Bolles Collection) 1822-1827

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.

At first glance, the Ornament and Stripe pattern may look provincial, but when hung it has an innate elegance and restraint. The pattern works extremely well in both of the colorways in the original sample books: green and white on a deep grey ground, or blue and white on the same grey ground.

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