Adelphi Paper Hangings offers wallpapers that are reproduced using the same hand-printing methods and materials employed circa 1720-1860, after which machine printing methods began to dominate the industry. Each order is individually hand printed by skilled artisans without compromises in quality, historical accuracy or consistency, and every aspect of Adelphi’s product – from paper types and paint composition to printing methods – has been thoroughly researched in institutions and archives in the U.S., England and France.
The primary image of each available pattern shown depicts its document colorway and is referred to as the A colourway. The B colourway uses color appropriate for the time period of the pattern. Colourways C and D are not necessarily historic but have been created to reflect more contemporary sensibilities.
The Adelphi Paper Hangings offers hundreds of historical prints, visit their website to view the full collection.
