Records of Stoddard International plc, Design Archive, Set Pattern Floral

Scope and Content

A selection of designs, primarily patterns rather than sketches, all featuring floral patterns. A number of designs from the Glenbarr, Sutherland, Gobelin and Buchanan ranges are represented. There are designs by, amongst others, Duncan Booth, G Hamilton and Rona Gardiner. 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. 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.

This description is part of the  Design Archive  which is divided into the 142 sections, each with its own separate description.
