Vintage 1860's Wall stencil border A was adapted from wall stencils found behind 7 layers of wallpaper when renovating a small house in Upper Fells Point, Baltimore, Maryland. It was traced directly from the old horsehair plaster in a house dating from the 1860s, Originally placed vertically in columns alternating blue then green, it was adapted for a horizontal application, also turning it into 3 color with gold accents. ( Gold highlights may be hand-painted where you'd like.)

You will receive the pattern digitally in 6 versions , on 2 pages:
full, one color picture of pattern
outlined pattern of the whole adapted version
outline of the original pattern A (one of the columns)
breakdown for red Pattern A

Pattern itself is approximately 4" X 14". Stencil material needs to be at least 6" high, 16" long
Ready to print, 2 patterns per 12.5" X 19" sheet of paper.
These can to print on 11.5" X 17" sheet of paper. Each will have 2 patterns, except the file showing 3, for which you can print up to 2 on one sheet.

This full sized pattern will need to be traced onto Mylar stencil material which can be purchased at your local craft store, then cut out with an Exact o knife.
Dots on the end should line up so you sill know show where the stencil should be placed each successive time.
