Scope and Content

Black and white photograph of a design, hand drawn and painted on paper [by May Morris]. The design is the same as 7MMO/1/167, of two circles, the left one with decorative lettering in black, with clover leaves growing around and in between. The right circle includes a shield shape, a heraldic lion, and a decorative floral surround to the circle. A very dark background has begun to be painted in. The photograph is pasted onto a page along with 7MMO/1/167. The object was held and photographed at the Bodleian Library, Oxford University. The photographs were taken during research by Elizabeth Masterman, for her book on May Morris. The text on the page reads 'Design / + paint'.
