FRENCH ART DECO WALLPAPER SAMPLER
WITH 479 DESIGNS


[WALLPAPER] / [ART DECO] L. D. M. Paris. Nouveautés. No. 10. [France], [Zuber & Cie. and others], [1920s].

Remarkable volume of block-printed wallpaper samples from 1920s Paris showcasing both traditional designs and the most current (and often wonderfully garish) art deco styles. The volume is an archive of Roaring Twenties wallpapers decorated with stripes, geometrical designs, floral and fruit motifs, landscapes, pastoral scenes, classical and oriental motifs, and animal designs. Of particular note is a sample depicting Charlie Chaplin in a famous scene from The Kid (1921), and another depicting the young Breton housemaid Bécassine, the first female protagonist in the history of comics. Some examples come from the renowned Zuber & Cie.
