Morris and Co. Tiles from Textiles: Artichoke

Artichoke: That vegetable of which one has more at the finish than at the start of dinner. ~Lord Chesterfield


William Morris Artichoke design

Catherine de Medici is credited with bringing artichokes to France in the 16th century when she arrived from Florence at the age of fourteen to marry the future Henry II. She apparently ate a good many of them, scandalizing the court because artichokes had a reputation for making the diner more lusty. Henry VIII was also said to have been overly fond of artichokes.
