William Morris Strawberry Thief Covered Mug with Tea Infuser from The Met Museum


Registered in 1883 and printed about 1917-23 at Merton Abbey Tapestry Works (British, founded 1881), Strawberry Thief is one of William Morris’s (British, 1834-1896) most iconic creations. The inspiration for this kaleidoscopic textile in the Museum’s holdings was derived from the designer’s country home, Kelmscott Manor, where a community of thieving thrushes would pluck the strawberries from his garden. Enjoy this celebrated motif at home with our tea-infusing covered mug.
