Sidewall, der Spitz [Point]
This is a Sidewall. It was designed by Dagobert Peche and manufactured by Flammersheim & Steinmann. It is dated 1921–22 and we acquired it in 1990. Its medium is machine-printed paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.
This stylized floral pattern is one of twenty-five designs created by Peche for the German manufacturer Flammersheim & Steinmann. The wallpaper features Peche’s distinctive blade-like leaf and petal forms and shows an interest in the Rococo and Baroque, characteristics also seen in the designer’s silver vase nearby.
