The wallpaper from which this design is drawn, is most likely of British Edwardianorigin, but stylistically is very representative of the era’s passion for oriental design, which – in a time of pre-modern artistic sensibility – was seen to retain a close connection to nature, simplicity and harmony. The trailing blossom and repeating birds are elements commonly found in early, hand-painted chinoiserie, and the use of traditional surface printing retains a tactile quality that subtly offers more to the discerning eye than a conventionally mass-produced paper. It once adorned the walls of the Grey Room at Gunby Hall in Lincolnshire, a large country house built some 200 years earlier for the Member of Parliament William Massingberd, that was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1944. This version has a colourway description of Oriental.
