Handpainted French Wallpaper

This handpainted French wallpaper was so expensive that the decorator was not allowed to furnish this room for 6 months. It was another 6 months before the client agreed to have anything hung on the walls. Eventually the room was finished.
This design contains flowers and birds as Patrice describes in CoS.
