William Morris designed Strawberry Thief in 1883 with birds drawn by his friend architect Philip Webb. Strawberry Thief was inspired by the Morris family efforts to grow strawberries at Kelmscott Manor but being thwarted by thrushes who would creep under the netting and eat the fruit. Morris insisted that the birds be left undisturbed.
