Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This Rupert Beat wallpaper is a rare find. It's slightly textured - but not a vinyl paper - and I think it might be Coloroll which would date it to the 1960's.
It's in pretty good condition for its age with just a few scuffs to the edges of the roll. The colours are very good and the white background is clean with just the very occasional mark.
Rupert Bear and friends are shown in four scenes:
- Rupert and Algy Pug talking to the Golden Fish
- Rupert and Mr and Mrs Bear having tea in the cottage in Nutwood.
- Rupert and Freddy and Ferdie Fox enjoying a road safety talk from Constable Growler
- Rupert, Bill Badger and Edward Trunk playing football.
The scenes are well divided if you wanted to cut them up for decoupage projects or to stick on walls. This paper would be lovely for covering books or just frame a piece up for a unique art work. Each picture is about 20cm in height and the vertical repeat is 46cm.
This Rupert wallpaper is sold by the Metre. A metre length will give you at least seven complete images and will come rolled in a tube.
