Sidewall - Samples, European Wallpapers: Modern Designs

This is a Sidewall - samples. It was distributed by Katzenbach and Warren, Inc.. It is dated 1928 and we acquired it in 1969. Its medium is machine printed on paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

Delicate pattern of foliate or floral sprigs overlapping and running in multiple directions. The motifs are stylized almost to abstraction, while the more saturated color of the sprigs makes them appear to float on the surface creating an uncluttered background.

It is credited Gift of Lois and William Katzenbach.
