Independence Day, July 4th
As we celebrate the anniversary of our country's independence, we honor the troops and veterans that made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedoms. In this post, we feature two Zuber panoramics relevant to this time and painted in sequence to be used as wall covering.
War of the American Revolution,(La Guerre De L'indépendance Américane)c. 1852
Installed in the foyer of the GreenBrier hotel by Interior Designer, Dorothy Draper.
Views of North America, (Vues de l'Amérique du Nord)
Installed into the Diplomatic Reception Room by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
Based in Rixheim (Alsace, France) since 1797 in a former commandry of the Teutonic Knights, the Zuber factory still prints wallpapers, fabric and leather using the traditional woodblock-printing technique.
This makes it the last factory in the world to use this 18th century technique for its production.
The factory has kept documents in its archive since the beginning (more than 130000 documents) as well as all the manufacturing tools (150000 woodblocks, carved by its workers between 1797 and 1870). The main strength of these archives is their scale, especially during the first half of the 19th century.
Zuber also produces fabric, leather and paint.
