Silver Studio, 1892

This is a design for a printed silk by the Silver Studio in 1892. The design features a pattern of lilies and leaves, dating from the early 1890s. The flowers sprays are given a three-dimensional treatment, but the sinuous flowing lines are similar to that used in later Art Nouveau designs.
