Calling Wallpaper Experts!

Post by zollydog »

I need some help identifying wallpaper in my house, because if possible I'd like to reproduce or preserve it, depending on what's feasible.

This is underneath the 1960s top layer in the living room of my late-1800s house:

This is the layer below that:

This is in my hallway -- no idea what vintage:

This was deep within my bathroom:

And this is the only one I think I can save, because it's in largely good condition:

Any expertise appreciated!

Not sure about reproducing it. But to find something similar from the same era check out www.adelpipaperhangings.com. Probably pricey, but they seem to be one of the best of giving you patterns from different eras. Would love to do my upstairs bedrooms in some of their patterns.
