Labels and date

British Galleries:
Morris believed tapestry to be one of the highest forms of decorative art. He did not begin production until years after other forms of textiles had become staple products of the firm. Despite this, he achieved considerable success owing to the quality of the weaving and the way in which his weavers translated Burne-Jones' figure drawings into finished tapestries. [2013]
