    Okay so I have trawled books and the internet to find this blummin' wallpaper...
    We've just moved into a house and the whole downstairs and up the staircase to the landing is covered in this paper. Right now we just dont have the time to re-do the whole thing as it is encrusted with paint and a nightmare to get off, however, because the lovely people who were 'looking after' the house after the poor owner had died were a little careless with, well themselves, there are two great big chunks out of the top of the stairs and in the dining room. Im talking metre chunks not centimetres...

    Weirdly this wallpaper looks familiar to me, but nowhere can I find it! The nearest I keep finding is anaglypta surf which isnt that near. The rest of the house was decorated early to late 1970s so im thinking its from around this time.

    Please tell me someone knows what this pattern is at least so I can try and source it! Key words I have used are fan, fantail, clamshell, plaster effect, brush stroke, feather, paintable, anaglypta etc....

    I would genuinely be eternally grateful

    Have you tried looking in the loft? That's where old wallpaper goes to die as a rule!:)
