Albemarle St – Flame
Reminiscent of Spitalfields silks, this paper, found in Albemarle Street, off Piccadilly, had an enormous pattern repeat of 6ft. Originally produced in a dark blue flock on a light ground, it was unusual to find so bold and expensive a paper used as here, in a low ceilinged, second floor bedroom. Such a grand paper would have been designed to have been on show ? more often in a downstairs reception room where guests would be entertained.
Note: On-screen and printer colour representations may vary from actual colours.
