Description

Echoing the lush colors of John Henry Dearle's (British, 1860–1932) 1896 wallpaper design entitled Compton, our scarf features a rich botanical and floral motif. Dearle, chief designer of William Morris's (British, 1834–1896) interior design firm Morris & Co, used two different shades of green, as well as pink and blue pastels for the poppies and tulips in his wallpaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ELEGANT SCARF This William Morris scarf is gorgeous; it is soft, silky, lightweight and makes a statement when worn. I've worn it around my neck under a (black) coat and also over a black turtleneck just loose. As I think about it, this scarf would look excellent with gold or red as well. It is rectangular and so can be worn in a variety of ways. This was a great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully elegant I bought this a month ago as a birthday present and am so happy that I did. This gift-scarf was inspired by just having read the lovely book "Peacock and Vine" by A.S. Byatt, about the designers William Morris and Mariano Fortuny. Trust me--the scarf is just elegant and a great reproduction of Morris' intricate designs. The quality is excellent and I am ever so delighted I located this at the museum through the Internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design, colors and fabric My wife loves to accent her work outfits with scarves for a little color, and when I saw this in the catalogue I thought she would like these colors. I'm a fan of William Morris designs (me and millions of others, of course), and was pleased that this reproduction was so finely executed, and especially happy that this attention to detail so pleased my wife. The fabric is very lightweight, elegant and comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful. This scarf has a lovely hand and deep colors. It has much more beige and brown to it than it appeared to have in the photo but it does not detract from the beauty of the scarf. It is a fairly narrow scarf and not very long either so it will show much more of the beige when worn than anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful soft silk scarf. The scarf is beautiful with many soft colors making it a nice accessory to just about any outfit. Being silk, it also is warm if worn with outerwear. I received one as a gift several years ago and in turn gave one as a gift as I have liked the scarf so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great scarf! This scarf, of dreamy fabric and lovely nostalgic design, can go with most things, and looks smashing against a demure blouse or a classic sweater--or both. The Compton design is indeed a classic--versatile and attractive at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect gift Purchased as a gift. Since the catalog description mentioned the inspiration for the design, we also bought the book Peacock and Vine off Amazon to go with it. The scarf is lovely with very rich colors. Adding the book completed this as a very nice set. We presented the gift in a perfectly sized peacock gift bag and felt like we really hit the mark with this gift. Wish i had taken a photo ti add here!
