English 1770-1790

Sayward Gothic is a classic quatrefoil pattern found under several layers of later paper in the home of Jonathan Sayward in York, Maine. It was installed between 1761 and 1767.  In examining the original document, the background color appears to be a light blue. However, the reverse side of the subsequent paper layer where most of the paint from the Sayward layer had transferred clearly shows it to have been a very deep Prussian blue, as shown in the historic colorway, above.  As was the fashion of the time it was hung with a narrow border.

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by  Historic New England.
