Antique Wallpaper Covering

An early example of hand printed wallpaper / linoleum type covering. Possibly an early form of window blind

Circa 1800’s

Two long pieces of beautifully printed flora and fauna design

Both pieces measured 6ft long, one 35cm wide the other 24cm

Both pieces have a 4cm hem, just at one end.

And both pieces were wrapped around a wooden bobbin.

The material I would describe as thick woven paper type linen. It feels papery to the touch, but has a weave in it.
