The photos below are of the "new" wallpapers from Mt. Diablo Handprints.

Dining Room Wallpaper

This particular wallpaper is known as "Hummingbird Lattice".  Its original source is the Kearny Mansion in Fresno, CA


This wall paper is known as "Wren's Nest".  Its source is the Wren's Nest, Joel Chandler Harris Association, Atlanta, GA.  Mr. Harris is best known as the writer of Uncle Remus.  We have installed it in our library.

This paper was originally found here in the Zanone House, and is now known by that name.  It has been painstakingly reproduced, and is now available for others to purchase and enjoy.  Here is a small section of it in our Front Parlor.
