The oriental scenes were much loved and appreciated throughout the 19th Century. Very fashionable until the art nouveau and art deco period have inspired numerous creations.
This five rolls wall paper is mounted on three wood frames. Two panels have two rolls and one panel has one roll framed. We put each stripe of this gorgeous wallpaper on frame and we made mold and moth treatment to preserve it for years to come.
Hang it on your home or put it directly on the wall for an exclusive eye-catching decorated wall vignette. This beautiful painting on paper could be used also to cover sliding doors or you can easily convert it into a screen or in an original room divider.

Our wallpaper is hand block painted. This technique is very refined, and consists in hand-pressing ancient inlaid blocks of wood (inlaid between 1797 and 1830). Those blocks of wood were soaked in color and then were hand-pressed on paper. For every different color, they had to use a new woodblock; that means that, to complete a scene, hundreds of woodblocks were needed.
These wood prints are considered French Historical Monuments. Zuber has been creating handmade wallpapers since 1797. It still adheres to its 200-plus-year-old tradition of producing wallpapers with original, 17th, 18th and 19th century woodblocks, with some panoramas made up of more than 50 strips of paper and dozens of layers of color and each applied by hand. Zuber’s “printed frescoes” are loved by many people.
