Lincrusta was first introduced in England in 1877, later being manufactured in the United States in 1883. Dense, durable and able to take a wide variety of finishes, Lincrusta rapidly gained popularity in higher-end homes where its deep texture and artistic design possibilites were appreciated.

Our small fragment comes from several original rolls we acquired in England, and features a snippet of a tooled leather design highlighted with factory-applied blue paint. Mounted on beveled ¾” bamboo plywood panel.
