Beautiful cushion cover hand-finished in England with a luxurious British velvet back. This design was produced by Morris & Co at Merton Abbey, Surrey, in 1883. The intricate design was created by William Morris and was inspired by a real-life problem - one which is familiar to many gardeners. In his garden at Kelmscott Manor, Morris tried to grow strawberries, but found that these were always being eaten by greedy thrushes who managed to creep under the netting. Morris allowed them to do so enjoying their efforts to remove the strawberries. Recalling their attempts, he designed this remarkable furnishing textile pattern, taken directly from the natural world. The gentle humour in this pattern helped to make it one of Morris's most successful creations. Cushion pad not included.
