Description

The Forest tapestry

The Forest tapestry, like The Peacock tapestry, was designed principally by Philip Webb. His study of five creatures in a long tapestry (48″x178″): a hare, lion, fox, peacock and raven is here a shorter more practical shape omitting the birds. One of our most popular William Morris wall tapestries, it is woven in France in 80% cotton and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging.

The 1887 original, woven by Morris & Co in wool and silk on a cotton warp, is in the Victoria and Albert Museum. The background of acanthus leaves is typical of William Morris and the five animals and birds were by Philip Webb. John Henry Dearle designed the floral foreground. The text on the original was taken from the Lion portion of the 1891 collection of William Morris poems “Poems by the Way”: “‘the beast that be in woodland waste, now sit and see nor ride nor haste'”. You can view this tapestry in the gallery of room settings.

The Forest tapestry is available in two sizes.
