This wallpaper is typical for the period 1860-1880, when medallion patterns without shadows and depth effects became popular. This was a reaction to the three-dimensionally designed wallpapers of the previous decades, which at this time were considered to be excessively realistic. The wallpapers of the Neo-Renaissance were frequently decorated with ornamentation in the form of stylised plant motifs, often inspired by the magnificent Oriental fabrics of the mediaeval period and Renaissance.
