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