Van Cortlandt Rosette
French, circa 1825

The Georgian style home of Frederick Van Cortlandt, in The Bronx, was commissioned in 1748.  However, the dining room wallpaper reproduced here was a later, 19th century addition. By this time American clients viewed France, rather than England, as the preferred source for high end wallpapers.

The original Jacquemart et Bernard pattern (#5063) is an excellent example of how significant depth and variation can be achieved when using only two printed colors on a ground. When paired with the Van Cortlandt Border it makes a dramatic, yet refined, statement.

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The National Society of Colonial Dames in the State of New York.
