I think this is just about the most beautiful piece of upholstery fabric I have ever seen. This is an authentic William Morris "Grape Vine" design that was reproduced by Sanderson (London) in their Morris & Co. line of wallpapers and fabrics. To see what this pattern looks like as a wallpaper, take a look here: http://buffaloah.com/a/lin/242/int/source/23.html

This is a heavy, tapestry weight fabric. I bought the piece new in Sanderson's London shop in 1996. Sanderson continues to manufacture Morris & Co. fabric and wallpaper patterns but I don't think they are currently offering this one. I was going to use it in a three-panel dressing screen but I never got around to finishing that project. Fifteen years in a drawer means it's time to let this fabric find a new life.

Fabric measures 55" wide (57" including the selvage) x 76" long. I hope someone does something incredible with this.

For some history on the evolution of Morris & Co. and the reemergence of its designs in 1965, see: http://www.william-morris.co.uk/history2.aspx?P=4
