Charles Francis Annesley Voysey’s wallpaper and textile designs were known references for painters working at the Rozenburg Pottery and Porcelain Factory in the Netherlands, whose designs can be seen in the case nearby. Voysey adapted nature into flat designs that appealed to biological and botanical interests of the era. Here, tulips and acanthus leaves are interlaced in a dynamic composition
