First Floor Entrance hall

First Floor Entrance hall: One layer of a circa 1930-1940 white stylized floral motif on a tan background covered the earlier diaper paper. The distemper red cochineal hand block printed paper’s diaper pattern is based on a diamond grid. The central motif is a quatrefoil (stylized open cut leaf). Early wall papers were frequently derived from textile designs. This design is similar to fabrics of the period.
