Product Description

Metropolitan Museum of Art Ballpoint Pen, William Morris Compton

Metropolitan Museum of Art Ballpoint pen from the Museum's Accessory collection. Twist the barrel to advance or retract the point. Utilizes a Parker-style refill. Gift boxed. Made in Taiwan for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

A talented writer, designer and administrator, William Morris (British, 1834-1906) was one of the most influential figures of the British Victorian era. In 1861, Morris, Burne-Jones and others founded the interior design firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. Calling themselves "fine art workmen," they deliberately broke down the modern barrier between fine and decorative art, and established an equivalent to the cooperative guilds of the Middle Ages. Morris was a prolific designer of wallpapers and fabrics. Characteristically, his designs were densely patterned and often based on flowers, leaves and fruits. This pen is based on Compton, a wallpaper design created by John Henry Dearle (British, 1860-1932), Morriss's chief designer in 1896. Proceeds from the sale of all Metropolitan Museum of Art products are used to support the Museum.
