Morris and Co. Tiles from Textiles: Anemone

When Hebrew and Aramaic words are carefully examined, some modern Israeli scholars suggest that the "lilies" in Matthew and again in Luke 12:27-28, surpassing the glory of Solomon, were really the ubiquitous, hardy, and vivid blossoms of spring Anemones. ~Stephen Buchmann, The Reason for Flowers

Anemone Accent Tile

William Morris Anemone tiles, red Anemones, silver green leaves, midnight background

The Anemone pattern as we know it comes from an undated Morris & Co pattern book and is usually attributed to John Henry Dearle as a very late Morris & Co. pattern -- yet it is more simple, and arguably closer to early Morris, than any other Dearle pattern. Dearle supervised other designers for Morris & Co.

Anemone is available in 6 x 6 inch and 8 x 8 inch tile. Anemone is an accent tile; it is not seamless in either direction.
