This poppy pattern is taken from Plate XXXVII in Christopher Dresser's "Studies in Design", c. 1875. The description of the plate is "Sheet of powerdings, adapted for wall-ornaments." Well, off to the dictionary to learn that powderings are (in this context) "Decoration by means of numerous small figures, usually the same figure often repeated." We originally turned this motif into a stencil for a wall ornament for a client's kitchen.
