Sidewall (England), 1945

This is a Sidewall. It was manufactured by Crown Wallcoverings Ltd.. It is dated 1945 and we acquired it in 1947. Its medium is machine-printed paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

Figural landscape design with two alternating scenes: a shepherdess resting at a tree with her sheep while a young man observes, and a young couple toys with a caged bird. The two scenes merge flawlessly into one another creating multiple, staggered points of interest, with each conveying a sense of romance.

It is credited Gift of Rose J. Dirksen.

Its dimensions are

81 x 56 cm (31 7/8 x 22 1/16 in.)
