Morris & Co. (1875-1940) was the successor to original business of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. William Morris had always been the driving force behind ‘the Firm’ and he finally determined to remove his earlier partners and to take the business  into his own hands, with Burne-Jones as principal designer. The business flourished, producing stained glass windows the length and breadth of the country.  It continued long after the deaths of Morris (1896) and Burne-Jones (1898), although without any great developments of style, and often continuing to use Burne-Jones’s designs. The role of chief designer passed to J H Dearle and, on his death in 1932 to W H Knight. It finally closed in 1940.
