    Moorcroft Pottery Acanthus Reborn 364/20


    Product description

    William Morris used time and time again curved acanthus leaves and willow and honeysuckle branches as the main theme or in the background of a design. Acanthus wallpaper was printed for Morris's company by the London firm Jeffrey & Co., who specialised in high quality wallpapers. Morris believed that a large pattern worked well in a small room and was more restful to look at than a small one. It required thirty wood blocks to print the full repeat, and used fifteen subtly different colours - more than any previous design by Morris.
