MORRIS, William. MORRIS & CO.
Original panel of silk needlework by Morris & Co with stylised acanthus.
c.1890. 53 x 53 cms. Mounted on wooden frame with a linen back. Framed in a box frame. Morris & Co. embroidery kits were sold with the design painted onto soft cotton cloth, known as 'Manchester cloth'.This has a suitably open weave, allowing embroiderers to define the design with stem stitch and cover areas of ground quickly with darning stitch using the silk threads or 'twist' supplied by Morris & Co from their Merton Abbey workshops. Sufficient thread to complete the design was supplied wrapped in tissue paper bundles. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
