manufactured by WPM; John Line & Sons, 1934

This wallpaper and border were produced in London in 1934 by John Line and Sons. People who followed new ideas about design in the 1930s preferred light colours and plain decoration but many households would have had patterns like this one. The design features a traditional Jacobean-inspired floral pattern that has been updated for 1930s tastes by adding broken rectangle shapes in the background. The wallpaper uses the autumnal colours that were popular with British consumers at this time.
