'Arcadia' wallpaper

Specimen of 'Arcadia' wallpaper, a pattern of intertwined flowers and foliage, cream and brown; Colour woodblock print, on paper; Inscribed on the back in ink with title, number and price. 
Part of 'Volume 2', a pattern book containing 27 Morris & Co. patterns from 1862-81

We think of Morris' lovely wallpapers but here a couple designed by May for Morris & Co. She was so talented like her Father.
