The earliest wallpaper was made on single sheets of paper pasted in tiles on a wall. Long rolls of paper (traditionally called "long elephant" were not available until the advent of machine made paper in the mid 19th century.
This particular print is made using the pattern from an early hand carved wood block, the borders in black made with a contemporarily made lino stamp.
This paper can be used as wallpaper however you should be aware that the registration is not absolutely machine perfect meaning that the repeats will not line up 100%.
