By Morris & Co.
Leicester was designed by J.H. Dearle in 1912 as a block printed wallpaper. Inspired by Morris earlier design Bachelors Button of 1892 Leicester is a colourful large scale design that harks back to the mediaeval period and features a recurring theme of scrolling acanthus leaves over a ground of flowers and foliage. Leicester is available in two colourways in the Morris III collection and it has recently been relaunched in more colourways for the Archive II Wallpaper collection.
