Large All Over Plain Ground Floral

Scope and Content

A selection of medium sized sketches and patterns featuring mainly floral and chintz designs which range from the early to late 20th century. Some designs 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. Some have been given a design number, some are dated, while a few also note contract details. A few of the designs feature pattern numbers in the form of 2 or 3 letters (eg. 'LEC' or similar), and as such, can potentially be cross-referenced with two design studio record books titled 'Letter Books' (Catalogue reference: STOD/201/8/5/1-2), often revealing further information such as dates and designers.
