Sidewall, Berger et Bergere
The Colonial revival movement in the early years of the twentieth century prompted a number of wallpaper manufacturers to start reproducing antique patterns. Nancy McClelland raised the bar when it came to reproduction wallpapers. She had her reproduction wallpapers woodblock printed in France in the same manner as the original. On this wallpaper she even printed the design on joined sheets of paper, the original way to make a roll prior to machine-made continuous paper which began in the 1820s.
