Anaglypta is a range of paintable textured wallcoverings made from paper or vinyl. It was the first washable wall covering and appealed to Victorians because of its sanitary properties, its durability, and ornate effects. This catalog displays backgrounds, panels, high relief centers, friezes, pilasters and many more ornaments. The title page touts their participation in the Paris International Exhibition of 1900. Very scarce, especially in such condition.
