Seashell Roomset

The Seashell Roomset was first discovered in the closet of an upstairs bedroom in the Cramer-Kenyon House in Yankton, South Dakota. The pattern was completely intact and we were delighted to find the colors had not faded with time. Built in 1886 for James H. Teller, the Cramer-Kenyon house is a fine example of Queen Anne architecture and still has many original interior elements. The original Seashell frieze and wall fill are American machine prints typical of the years between 1880 and 1900. Our Dove Blue colorway is a hand-printed reproduction of the original, including the shimmering metallic inks.

Shown at left, Seashell beautifully adorns the Brune-Reutlinger House in San Francisco. The scalloped shells in the headboard are echoed in the glowing shells of the Seashell Frieze above the picture molding. Copper and gold metallic inks provide a warm glow throughout the room as the Starfish Ceiling paper floats above. Attached to the frieze is an attractive 7-1/2" border that can also be used on the ceiling for added effect.

Though every effort has been made, photographs cannot accurately recreate the effects of metallic inks and flat oil pigments. Samples are available to assist in color matching.
