Records of Stoddard International plc, Design Archive, Old Carpet Squares

Scope and Content

The majority of these designs have been painted onto design paper and then backed with linen, and are in a poor and fragile condition. A number carry dates which are all late 19th century and most have design numbers written on the reverse. Due to their very fragile condition items from STOD/DES/81 need to be handled with extreme care and should only be viewed after consulting with the Preservation Manager.

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