Top right hand room
Don't think the frieze is original as seems to be stuck on top of wallpaper but it's so pretty I think I will leave it.

I'm not sure the dado belongs to or with the wallpaper. I suspect the decorator just wanted a different look in this room. It's a pretty border wherever it came from, and goes well with the wallpaper.


If you compare this frieze and the one in the other room in Full Size, it's clearer that some of the red and yellow flowers are identical in them. I'm pretty sure they were made to go together in some way.

I'm going to leave it, I'm not sure what it would look like underneath and it's pretty and seems to go with the wallpaper.

These 1920s dolls house wallpapers often had a frieze and a dado. I think probably the decorator of this house used the dado as a frieze in this room, but kept the main pattern of the paper the same way up as in the room where the pattern and frieze were used. So the dado would have been cut off the bottom and stuck on the top.

The colours and flower shapes on the border are such a good match for the paper that I would be very surprised if they weren't both original.

It's gorgeous, I would leave it too. You've done a brilliant job of removing the papers without damaging the ones underneath.
