Morris & Co. (1861-1947)

Firm set up by William Morris (1834-96) as Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co., originally with (among others) Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti Ford Madox Brown and Philip Webb in 1861. From 1865 the workshops were in Bloomsbury, and when in 1875 the firm changed its name to Morris & Co., Burne-Jones became the principal designer. In 1881 the workshops moved again, to Merton Abbey. 'Revolutionary in its beginnings, and extremely influential in terms of design and quality'. The firm finally closed in 1947.
