Sidewall, der Spitz [Point]

This is a Sidewall. It was designed by Dagobert Peche and manufactured by Flammersheim & Steinmann. It is dated 1921–22 and we acquired it in 1990. Its medium is machine-printed paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

This stylized floral pattern is one of twenty-five designs created by Peche for the German manufacturer Flammersheim & Steinmann. The wallpaper features Peche’s distinctive blade-like leaf and petal forms and shows an interest in the Rococo and Baroque, characteristics also seen in the designer’s silver vase nearby.

This object was donated by Cincinnati Art Museum. It is credited Gift of Cincinnati Art Museum.
