Not on view

Like many of Wheeler’s popular wallpaper designs, this drawing employs forms found in nature to create a dense and stylized pattern, suitable for Aesthetic period interiors. It was produced by the New York manufacturer Warren, Fuller & Company. Also active as a teacher, Wheeler trained many younger women to achieve financial success in the fields of textile and interior design.
