About this piece
'Cherwell' pattern. Designed by John Henry Dearle for William Morris.
Two tall panels.
Dearle's 'Cherwell' Design, a pattern derived from 17th century velvets that Morris had introduced, is comprised of diagonal elements so they remain attractive when gathered or pulled back.
'Cherwell' was designed in 1887 as a wood block print on velveteen and when later applied in 1890 to wallpaper became known as 'Double Bough.'
