May Morris and Morris & Co. Designs

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. Many later patterns are attributed to John Henry Dearle, who apprenticed at Morris & Co., but clearly show elements from other Morris designs, some of which were definitely designed by May as well as others at Morris & Co..
