With just one printed color and one metallic on a painted ground, the simple yet breath-taking color palette of this late 1880s paper shows how much can be done with how little. An artifact of the period when romantic medievalism enriched the stone mansions of the wealthy, this fantastic pattern of bands, leaves and heraldic shields bearing rampant lions makes a stunning impression.

In existence from 1880 to 1887, the American Wallpaper Manufacturers Association (A.W.P.M.A.) was a trust formed by many of the major wallpaper factories, dominating the market during the high point of the Gilded Age.
