This textile design’s gold tones, stylized leaves, and blooming flowers create a flat and shallow surface, a defining quality of Aesthetic Movement ornament influenced by the mania for Japanese woodblock prints and other Edo exports. In the late 19th century, Warner and Sons was a leading weaver of furnishing silk. This design for an interior fabric would have been executed in metallic threads, which, when met with light, would further contribute to its emphasis on surface ornament.
