A large hand-painted glass roundel showing a detail from William Morris's Strawberry Thief design in shades of gold and red.
Made in Britain, the Strawberry Thief design has been recreated and framed in traditional stained glass lead. The roundel includes a trace chain and a suction cup to adhere it to any glass surface.
Strawberry Thief was first produced in 1883. The design was a triumph for Morris as it marked the perfecting of the indigo-discharge technique of printing at Merton Abbey.
The design was inspired by William Morris's observation of the thrushes under the strawberry nets at his home, Kelmscott Manor.
Measures 6" (15cm).
Supplied in a gift box.
