Broad Stripe – Fontana
A classic ?Roman? or Regency proportion stripe originally produced in the 18th Century using the ?open trough? method, in which the stripes were created by bands of paint seeping through holes or slots in the bottom of a wooden trough, onto the surface of the paper as it was pulled beneath. Striped wallpapers manufactured in this way are characterised by a brushed finish which was later superseded by a flatter print achieved with 19th Century rollers, as is evidenced in these papers.
Note: On-screen and printer colour representations may vary from actual colours.
