William Morris Eyeglass Case

About the Artist

William Morris (1834-1896), a British designer, writer, and socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the Arts and Crafts Movement. Inspired by the medieval past, Morris established a decorative arts firm in 1861 with partners Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, and Edward Burne-Jones that aimed to erase the distinction between the fine and applied arts. In 1875 Morris reorganized the company under his sole direction as Morris & Co. The firm produced tiles, furniture, embroidery, stained glass, printed and woven textiles, carpets, and tapestries for both ecclesiastical and domestic interiors. In the last decade of his life, Morris founded the Kelmscott Press for the production of high-quality, hand-printed books
