Mohair Damask
1917

Mohair Damask was designed by William Morris and registered 18 November 1876. Power loom jacquard woven mohair and wool by Dixon of Bradford, Yorkshire. A popular design it continued to be produced into twentieth century. This design in a cotton version was called Crown Imperial.

I had some curtain lengths sold a while ago, which had the label Morris & Company Ltd, Upholsterrs. Church furnishers & Tapestry Restorers, 17 George St, Hanover Square, London W1. By Appointment. A similar label in Parry's book* shows this to date from c 1918.  The shop in this location opened in 1917 and continued until the firm's liquidation in May 1940. A few smaller pieces have now become available.

These pieces have slight fading stripes. You might not mind this and could make this piece into a cushion cover. There is also a photo of the reverse. This is in very good condition, and you may like to use this for the main side.
