Description
American, probably Philadelphia, 1805-1815 Construction of the Savannah house of Revolutionary veteran John Berrien was started in 1791. The Berrien House Ribbon Trellis was the second wallpaper installed in the hallway; it was also the second paper in a sequential “sandwich” of patterns found in another room of the house. Several of the patterns from the Berrien House share both motif and structural aspects with papers from Philadelphia and therefore a similar attribute for this pattern seems plausible. This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by Andrew Berrien Jones - John Berrien House, Savannah. Reproduction of the pattern was commissioned by the Davenport House Museum, Savannah, GA. Repeat 16 ½ inches / 42 cm Width 21 inches / 53.3 cm Straight Match The historic colorway image above shows two widths of the pattern installed. Alternate colorway images show one complete width of the pattern.
