Project Description

Pomona tapestry by William Morris

The Pomona tapestry by William Morris represents spring (whereas the Flora tapestry represents autumn). Edward Burne-Jones designed the figure and Morris created the mille fleurs background. It was woven originally in wool and silk on a cotton warp at Merton Abbey by Morris & Co.

Pomona is part of “Verses for Pictures” in the William Morris collection “Poems by the Way”:
I am the ancient Apple-Queen,
As once I was so am I now.
For evermore a hope unseen,
Betwixt the blossom and the bough.

Ah, where’s the river’s hidden Gold!
And where the windy grave of Troy?
Yet come I as I came of old,
From out the heart of Summer’s joy.

It is now woven in France in 80% cotton and 20% viscose and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging.

The Pomona tapestry by William Morris is available in two sizes:
32″x19″ US$110
47″x29″ US$265
