Abstract

Shugborough, Staffordshire, was remodelled by Samuel Wyatt between 1790-1806 for Sir Thomas Anson, later Viscount Anson (1767-1818). The survival of two detailed bills of goods and work by the Eckhardts at the house, together with a promotional booklet produced by the firm, reveals the role a London based paper hangings firm could play in the supply of wall decorations by the 1790s.
