c.1870 This pattern was originally painted on a robe in "The Presentation in the Temple" 1485 by Michael Pacher. G. F. Bodley (one of the founders of Watts) adapted the elegant design and used it frequently in many of his commissions including in the Blue Drawing Room at Powys Castle as curtains and upholstery. The Memlinc is typical of a large repeating pattern designed for upholstery: the oval is perfectly suited in scale to compliment the back of a chair with a central motif flowering in the centre in golden rays and Indian red woven silk.
