One of the most influential 19th century books on architectural patterns is The Grammar of Ornament, by Owen Jones, published in England in 1853. It fanned interest in decorative schemes for molding, tile, and wallpaper from a wide variety of sources. The page above describes Greek motives from friezes and pottery.
