Marion Dorn's design for Edinburgh Weavers, launched in 1936 in a colour scheme of mainly pastels. The screen-printed velvet panel depicts a repetitive pattern of a Large flower head on a loosely drawn stem with leaves, overlaid with patches of subtle colour as if applied by generous brushstrokes. The velvet panel is mounted and in excellent condition.
