VICTORIAN ERA
1837-1901
There's are an awful lot to learn about Victorian wallpaper, partly because the Victorian era covers more that 6 decades. One
just has to recall the different designs that evolved have from 1940-2000 to understand the profound changes in design that occurred during the reign of Queen Victoria The Victorian era was an era of great technical advances.


SANITARY WALLPAPER

One of the problems with wallpaper was that it was difficult to keep clean. Wallpapers in kitchens or in heavy traffic areas were particularly vulnerable.
From the 1850’s on wallpaper manufacturers were seeking a way to make waterproof wallpaper. Various varnishes and other concoctions were used to coat certain wallpapers in order to make them washable. These became known as ‘sanitary wallpapers.As well as being used in kitchens and bathrooms, sanitary wallpapers were also widely used in halls, passages and staircases. I can vouch for this because we had some horrid brown varnished wallpaper in the hallway in my childhood home.. Now I am not saying that I was around in the Victorian era, I was born in the 1940's, but that wallpaper had been on our hallway walls for many years before I came along.

IS THIS WHAT THEY MEAN BY FLYPAPER?

Another big problem with Victorian wallpaper was how to keep it clean. It was not just grubby fingers and fireplace smoke which were a nuisance to the house proud Victorian lady, fly spots were a horrible problem too.
More than one manufacturer began to produce wallpaper with patterns that contained lots of tiny dots. The theory here being that the fly spots would just blend in with all the other dots.
To we who live in the 21st century, this sounds very nasty indeed, but let us remember, Victorians were not famous for cleanliness.

This Victorian Parlor can be seen at the
D. H. Lawrence Birthplace in Nottingham UK.
It replicates the house where D. H. Lawrence was born in 1885.
The parlor is typical of working class houses from that era.
It reminds me a lot of my Granny's living room, including the dog ornaments on the mantelpiece, fireplace itself, the chair in the foreground, and the heavy [velvet?] table covering. I am remembering my Granny's house in the late 1940's, so it definitely was not the Victorian era. She and my Grandfather married around the turn of the century though, and they had a lot of children, so it is quite probable that they had the same furniture for all their married life.
