Frieze, Stamford, ca. 1903
This is a frieze. It was designed by Albert Warner and manufactured by Jeffrey & Company. It is dated ca. 1903 and we acquired it in 1955. Its medium is block-printed and stenciled paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.
A leading producer of artistic wallpapers, Jeffrey & Company commissioned designs from Walter Crane. In 1872, the company introduced the horizontal division of the wall into three sections: a frieze (such as this design) at the top, a filling below, and a dado that ran from skirting level almost to the floor. This block-printed example, created by Albert Warner, son of the company’s founder, shows stylized rose bushes overlapping an inverted heart.
