Pattern of Modern Gothic Paper
... it may not be amiss to mention some other absurdities ... I
will commence with what are termed Gothic-pattern papers, for hanging walls,
where a wretched caricature of a pointed building is repeated from the skirting
to the cornice in glorious confusion, - door over pinnacle, and pinnacle over
door. This is a great favourite with hotel and tavern keepers (page 25).
