Vintage Finds: Dog Wallpaper Decals

The instructions were easy: “Damp gummed side with a wet cloth, wait 30 seconds, place in position and rub down gently.”

Wallpaper Decals were popular from about the 1930s into the ’50s and were mostly used to decorate a nursery or a child’s bedroom. They were also used to decorate furniture. These dogs were drawn by British artist Lucy Dawson (ca. 1870 to 1954) who was well known for her dog art, and were used to make decals by Butterfly Brands, a popular wallpaper maker in the UK. With luck, you might be able to find some on eBay, other auction sites or flea markets. We have a longtime Bark reader to thank for these examples.
