What joy this space 'twixt birth and death can give. ~William Morris

Some of these patterns were produced by Morris & Co. during Morris's life -- Morris made frequent visits to Merton Abbey even in his later years, and a collaborative influence is very much seen on patterns such as Blackthorn and Golden Lily. Later patterns are attributed to John Henry Dearle, who apprenticed at Morris & Co., but clearly show elements from other Morris designs.

The Forest was designed by William Morris. His friend, Philip Webb, created the birds and and animals. The Forest is available as a border, a backsplash, and individual forest animals.
The Lilies before the fence were added by John Henry Dearle, and are not in the Burne-Jones design.
