A fragment of wallpaper with an Eastern themed design which incorporates birds (including the Lady Amherst pheasant) in a tree with unidentified blossoms and flowers. The wallpaper features a white background with black branches and there is a floral decoration on the reverse.
Lady Amherst pheasants feature along with other, smaller birds on this opulent wallpaper, which is likely to have been hung in a residential property in the 1920s. The 1920s was a decade where wallpaper boomed in popularity, with rich and exotic patterns taking centre stage.
