This is a border. It was designed by Xavier Mader and manufactured by Joseph Dufour et Cie.. It is dated 1815 and we acquired it in 1998. Its medium is block printed on handmade paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.
Wallpaper frequently imitates luxe materials such as stone, exotic woods, leather, and draperies, offering a less expensive alternative. Oftentimes, the material being imitated is not available in the quantity needed or can’t be manipulated in the manner desired, while wallpaper offers an easy-to-hang alternative.
