Apple wallpaper (designed 1877, printed 1950-1990)

William Morris designed this wallpaper in 1877. The pattern combines apples and scrolling acanthus leaves against a background of foliage. The wallpaper required three wood-blocks with a repeat size of 30.5 x 26.7 cm.

This version was printed by Sanderson after they acquired the original woodblocks in 1940 from Morris & Co. when they closed.
