A few hours were spent today in the archives of the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture. I looked through a couple of pattern books and identified a few patterns which look very similar to one’s in our collection.
The design is not eaxctly the same as the white splodges in the MODA pattern book are seperate, whearas the Back to Backs paper’s white splodges have a branch like interconnected formation. However the essential design of white splodges on ungrounded paper is the same.
A similar paper to the above is in our collection.
Both papers have a silver print of large block shapes containing flower designs, though the second is clearly suffered much damage.
Finding a similar paper in MODA could help with dating the papers later after the layers are organised.
