I like this wallpaper, Tom.

No doubt the real thing, imported at great expense
Tom Wilson: Apparently not in roles but in rectangles - one measured up a wall and then bought the requisite number of pieces to put together smile Probably mass produced in China in the 19th century and possible quite cheap - apart from transport. See, however, http://bit.ly/2sdzNk1
Most pleasing to the eye, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Very much so.

I could live with a wall of this, Tom
Tom Wilson: Me too!
I expect they invented it.
Tom Wilson: I wouldn't be at all surprised, Chad!
Hand printed no doubt and cost a fortune
Tom Wilson: Actually, it might not have cost too much - coming from China in 18th or 19th century - transport would probably be the biggest cost. See, however: http://bit.ly/2sdzNk1
No doubt quite pricey wallpaper.
Tom Wilson: Considering how mean nobility can be, perhaps not, Brian - it was coming from China, where I guess the workers were paid peanuts! Not as pricey as it would be now - http://bit.ly/2sdzNk1
I can see the influence.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's typical Chinese isn't it?
jolis détails!! amitiés

Remarkably well detailed and probably well ahead of the time.
Tom Wilson: Probably 19th century - very popular in the great houses smile

a fine detail - I have once been in Chatsworth and I remember to have been in a treasure house.
Tom Wilson: It's essentially a museum these days - there's no indication that anyone lives there, although, in fact part of the house is occupied.
