'Sanderson Decorative Papers' Wallpaper Pattern Book
wallpaper sample book
Arthur Sanderson & Sons Ltd., 1959 - 1960
This is a Sanderson's wallpaper pattern book from the 1950s. The papers in the book are designed for commercial purposes and on the inner page it is suggested that the papers could be used for boxes, cartons, silverware, books etc. and therefore they are sold in sheets as well as reels. Unusually the book is split into sections with the first few pages devoted to flock wallpaper colour swatches. The other sections include 'Fancies', 'Edging and Tartan', 'Christmas and Easter', 'Christmas motifs', 'Golds and Silvers', 'Leatherettes', 'Wood Grain and Dolls House' papers and 'Plan colour' papers.
