Morris & Co Tulip and Rose
1876

It is unusal to find this design in red. This lovely piece would look marvellous mounted on a stretcher and hung on the wall, or could be traditionally framed.

This design was registered as a fabric on 20 January 1876 and woven by the Heckmondwike Manufacturing Company Ltd, Yorkshire, England. It was one of Morris's first designs. Heckmondwike's exhibited fabrics at the Great Exhibition of 1851 where the jury described the great perfection of Morris & Co work both in excellence of materials and elegance of design.
