William Morris

A talented writer, designer, and administrator, William Morris (British, 1834-1896) was one of the most influential figures of the British Victorian era. In 1861, Edward Morris, Burne-Jones, and others founded the interior design firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner, & Co. Calling themselves “fine art workmen,” they deliberately broke down the modern barrier between fine and decorative art and established an equivalent to the cooperative guilds of the Middle Ages. Morris was a prolific designer of wallpapers and fabrics. Characteristically, his designs are densely patterned and often based on flowers, leaves, and fruits.

An enduring design from the firm of William Morris (British, 1834-1896), the wallpaper Compton 1896 is typical of the lavish botanical patterns pervading Morris’s aesthetic. Our pen is based on Compton, a wallpaper design created by John Henry Dearle (British, 1860-1932), Morris’s chief designer, in 1896. This design is featured on our ballpoint pen. Ballpoint pen. Refillable. Gold overlay and printed laquer. 5 1/4”L.
