We just bought a 1900 house. It has this paneling on every wall. I was wondering if anyone knew which era this belongs to? It is a textured paneling that is almost like there was plaster or something on it and then a putty knife was drawn down it, leaving a bump at the end. It is standard 8 x 4 sheets but I am not too crazy about it. There is plaster and lathe under it and I would like it gone. But don't want to take it down if it is somewhat contemporaneous to the building of the house.
This looks like the stuff I had in a house I owned way back when. The house had been moved in the late 60's and the walls paneled to cover moving cracks. I pulled off the paneling and repaired the plaster. The stuff is ugly now and I am sure it was when they put it on. I bet the best thing about it was the low price.
