The Pomona Belgian tapestry is one of the most popular of William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones tapestries, designed in 1885 showing Pomona, "the ancient apple queen", who personifies Autumn in this Pre-Raphaelite tapestry. We see the figure standing barefoot in a pink robe, with an intricate leaf effect on the bodice and sleeves. Her hair is tied back and in her right hand she holds a harvest of apples and an apple branch in her left. On the ground and in the background are acanthus, with sunflowers, reminiscent of the Mille Fleurs backgrounds common in Medieval tapestries. An ornate and detailed work that is typical of the dedication of the Morris & Co artists and weavers.
