The last design of Morris & Co, Compton was designed by John Henry Dearle in 1895. The design was originally for Compton Hall of Wolverhampton where Lawrence Hodson resided. The original design was incredibly hard work to print as it required two sets of wooden block in order to print all 28 colours owing to the large repeating pattern. It has now since been adapted for a wider audience.
The Morris Gallery Collection has been created under the watchful eye and newly licensed by The William Morris Gallery. We are proud to bring you a collection of 3 designs that have been produced to be closer to the orginal design. They are crisper detail, richer colour and have been adjusted to scale to ensure that they are as fresh and appealing as they were 120 years ago when they were first created.
William Morris is possibly known best for being heavily involved in the Arts and Crafts design movement in the 1860's which was very popular at the end of the 19th century in Britain, Australia, Canada and the USA. He was a poet, artist, designer, writer and an early advocate of socialism in Britain
William Morris' designs are still very popular today and are produced widely as home textiles, gifts and wallpapers.
