1920s

Sidney G Mawson (1876-1941) was a very successful designer by changing his style to suit fashion and the individual tastes of manufacturers.  He designed for weaver A H Lee, and for printers Thomas Wardle, Foxton's, Turnbull and Stockdale, G P & J Baker, Warner & Sons, Alexander Morton and Morton Sundour, who sold through Liberty's. Pleasaunce was Morton Sundour's most popular design in 1907. Previously he had taught textile design at the Slade School of Art and was a landscape painter. He also designed wallpapers for Jeffrey & Sons.
