Description

The influential designer William Morris (British, 18341896) produced a full range of handcrafted goods during the Victorian erafrom books to furniturebut his wallpapers in particular have a timeless appeal. Morris believed that beauty, imagination, and order were the essential components of a successful design; all three are evident in his hand-block- printed wallpaper Pink and Rose (ca. 1890). Pink in the title refers not to the color but to fragrant flowers in the genus Dianthus. Weve adapted Morriss elegant botanical pattern in the Museums collection for our ornate vase.

Glass, with decal application. Gift boxed. Hand wash only. 11 1/2''H x 6''W x 2''D.
