While many of us today couldn't imagine living in a room completely papered in such a spectacular gilded floral extravaganza, the carefully executed custom framing treatment on this large and striking panel serves up just enough to enjoy the luxurious flavor, without over-indulging.

Though this paper is typical of the fine and densely layered all-over floral patterns of the 1880s, it is the uncommon use of gold metallic as a background fill and the soft and delicate palette of straw, ivory, and dusty rose that truly sets this paper apart.

This piece is custom framed with the paper mounted to rag board and then edge mounted to a white wood frame with spacers elevating the paper slightly off of the frame.
