A flocked version of this flowering vine
with diaper pattern is found in a bedroom of
the 1752 Webb House in Wethersfield,
Connecticut. It is supposed to have been hung
in 1781 in preparation for a visit from George
Washington, although that date is perhaps late
for this pattern.
The use of such a very large pattern in a
small bedroom with low ceiling is surprising
in the original setting, although the effect
is impressive. Adelphi's version of this very
fine pattern reproduces the original pattern
and scale, but without flocking.
