Medium and large carpet design sketches and patterns for stairs and rugs dating from the 1900s to the 1980s, which can broadly be described as Persian in style. Most patterns consist of several seperate pieces of paper and have therefore been catalogued as single items with multiple parts. Where items are folded and stapled or clipped together the size recorded is that when folded. The majority have been given a design number, some are dated, while a few also note contract details.
