Period Wallpaper in Tower Grove House / Missouri Botanical Garden

Authentic furniture, and reproduction wallpaper reflecting the styles and tastes of the time.
This is a William Morris design , and reflects the Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau design movement.
I believe this is also William Morris .
In the study , similar to the William Morris Willow Bough .
These wallpapers were probably made by the Morris & Co. brand. Their patterns are very popular right now.
If you go shopping, be sure to look for the non-woven or paste the wall material , not the historic British pulp paper.
This is the home of Henry Shaw , botanist. It was built in 1849 , with additions and changes over the years.
