Delivery to Hungary: Free for all orders above 15 000 HUF.
Floral glass bottle with plastic, screw cap. A perfect gift for those who are environmentally conscious but also like style. The spring atmosphere of the flower-covered trees is evoked by the pierced pattern running around the wall of the slender glass bottle. The lockable bottle can be a decoration of a garden table or dining room, and even simple tap water tastes better from it in the gym.

As the success of Morris & Co. Grew in the 18070s and Moris's name bacame more famous, it was necessary to take on more designers. Morris himself maintained a firm grip over production, and after his death in 1896 his floral vocabulary enabled those working for the firm to produce patterns firmly attributable to Morris & Co. Morris's most successful pupil was John Henry Dearle (1859-1902). Dearle began his long employment with Morris & Co working as a teenager in the firm's Oxford Street shop. William Morris took him under his wing and trained him to work firstly in the stain glass and then as his tapestry assistant. By the early 1880s, Dearle was responsible for training tapestry assistants for the firm. His natural aptitude for design then lead him to becoming the key designer for embroidery patterns at Morris & Co. After the death of William Morris, Dearle became Art Director of Morris & Co and was responsible for many popular later floral designs.
White spring blossom and pink clover flower heads sprinkle the surface of this wallpaper, designed by John Henry Dearle in 1903. The informal, small-scale pattern suited Edwardian taste, which favoured pastel colours and lighter designs over the darker and heavier patterns of the Victorian era.
