Sidewall - Sample (USA), 1906–08
American art nouveau design with different views of the thistle, rendered in a realistic manner. Thistle, though a beautiful wildflower, is more often viewed as a weed and not commonly used on wallpaper. Printed in natural colors the design would have been appropriate for the earthy colors favored in the early twentieth century.
