Pair of French Hand Blocked Wallpaper Panels Depicting Greek Gods


This very fine pair of early 19th-century French Empire hand-printed wallpaper panels depict Mercury, the Greek god of commerce and communication, and Demeter, the goddess of the harvest. Each is mounted on canvas, with a gilt frame. These panels are similar in design to early 19th-century wallpaper in a private home in Lyon, France.
