During the late 17th and 18th Centuries, the Orient offered a taste of the exotic, a perceived glimpse of an alternative, almost magical, culture known only through the romantic writings of the occasional intrepid traveller such as Marco Polo. Chinese wallpapers played an important part of this 18th Century Fashion for Oriental interiors, providing a rich and colourful setting for prized collections of oriental porcelain, silks, lacquer and other export wares brought over by the East India Companies. Historically, the creation and use of such papers was not a Chinese tradition and research suggests that these were a largely European construct, devised to fulfil the expectations of fashionable clients and their decorators, such as Thomas Bromwich and Thomas Chippendale. The client often took an unusually active personal interest in their choice and acquisition with wonderful examples surviving in major houses including Harewood House, Yorkshire, Fellbrigg and Blickling Hall, Norfolk, and Saltram in Devon .These gorgeous papers were both printed and painted by hand, using luscious colours such as malachite, azurite and the deep rich crimson of carmine. They must have appeared almost jewel like in their vibrant explosion of detail and colour, providing a delightful contrast to the dour formality of wainscot, tapestry and damask and were usually used to enliven private apartments such as bedrooms, dressing rooms and cabinets.The fashion for Chinoiserie gained second wind during the 19th century, inspired by the eclectic exoticism of the Prince Regent and the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. Examples still survive at the Pavilion, and also at Buckingham Palace in the Yellow Drawing Room on the First Floor, whilst a similar paper hangs at Temple Newsam House in Leeds.By the time of the fashionable “ English Country House Style’ , invented by Nancy Lancaster in 1920’s and 30’s, Chinese Wallpapers had achieved the status of covetable antiques, being sold both as rooms and panels and spawning a cottage industry of talented copyists. Similarly today, we have re discovered the magical beauty of Chinese wallpapers with originals achieving high prices at auction and modern interpretations proving highly desirable. Having conserved so many of these wonderful wallpapers, we are delighted to be able to offer a selection of our favourites including several from The Royal Pavilion and Belvoir Castle as fine art, authentic replicas .
