Domino wallpaper green blue Ribbon . 1799

Atelier chez Les Associé (s)

150,00 €

Signed "A Paris chez les Associés n ° 121", this domino paper was made around 1750 : it represents an interlacing of green blue ribbons enhanced by roses and terracotta-colored leaves. The whole is placed on a slightly dotted background.. Originally, the black patterns were printed with an engraved wooden-block and the colors applied with a stencil.

To give life and modernity to this beautiful domino paper from the mid-18th century, our workshops carried out a long digital restoration.

On domino papers, the mention "A Paris chez les Associé(s) » followed by a number is frequent. But the identity of this or these manufacturers remains a mystery. Installed rue Saint-Jacques in Paris and active from 1758 to 1778, was this Parisian workshop really Parisian or rather a group of domino manufacturers from Orleans who found this trick to escape Parisian taxes and sell their goods more easily in the capital?

Anecdote
Anecdote

In the 18th century, domino papers were used more to cover objects than walls because they were relatively small (about 45X36cm) and not expensive pieces. They were used in particular to cover books. Current second-hand booksellers are therefore an important source for today's collectors. This also explains why the domino papers kept are often very damaged in the middle (edge ​​of the book).

The original design is predominantly blue (cf picture). Like many domino papers, its background is pecked: this effect was obtained by means of metal points on wooden-block. Its patterns of roses and leaves are typical of domino papers and more generally of rural settings of the time. They are emblematic of an 18th century influenced by the Enlightenment spirit and its desire to place nature at the heart of new ideas. Its interlacing of ribbons which form a grid of flower garlands are also quite specific to domino iconography.
