A chiffon scarf based on Acanthus, c.1875 (wallpaper) by Morris, William (1834-1896).
The outstanding 'Acanthus' printed design of intertwined leaves was designed by Morris and first registered in 1874. It is one of his most instantly recognisable designs and marks the beginning of a period in which Morris created large-scale designs for wallpaper. 
These often featured layered patterns and rich colours with vigorous curves and scrolling foliage, giving a three-dimensional quality, which is emulated in this chiffon scarf on high-quality silk chiffon.
