One of the reasons we set out to redecorate the sitting room-aside from the need for more closet space-was the aged country-kitchen heart motif wallpaper the room was covered in. When we removed the trim around one of the windows, this even older wallpaper was behind it. We know that this wing had been added to the house prior to about 1922. The wallpaper, though, would seem to be earlier than that-but I can't be certain.
