Adelphi Paper Hangings is located in Sharon Springs, NY, and was founded to help insure that the art and craft of traditional handmade wallpapers would survive. It is the only commercial production facility for block printing historic papers in the United States and their work hangs in museums, historic sites, and other fine homes around the world.
We are pleased to offer an Adelphi Paper Hangings Beekman 1802 exclusive: The Locust Grove Arabesque (Flora, Flora with Cherub, and The Dancers.) During a 1962 renovation, fragments of this pattern were discovered in Locust Grove, the 1790s Federal style home of William Croghan, near Louisville, Kentucky. Though the few surviving pieces comprised only a small portion of the overall pattern, it nevertheless obvious the paper was of a higher caliber than what would have typically been used in the western frontier and is thought to date from 1787.
Each of these prints is hand-printed using traditional methods and is a true work of art and craft. Each print bares the mark of ADELPHI on the back. (You can learn more about Adelphi here.)
