Description:

A rare pair of French wallpaper panels from the décor “Gobelins” entitled, “L’Amour Gronde” and “L’Amour Grondant”. The panels were wood-block printed on a blue background. The décor was first manufactured by Zuber in 1866. The design was inspired by Boucher.

This rendition dates to the late 19th century, printed in a limited edition. One example may be found in the Kassel Museum collection and published in its catalogue, “Tapetenkunst” by Sabine Thummier, p. 106.

These panels are amongst a rare set that is no longer available. They are in mint condition since they were never previously hung.
