Price Lists

Scope and Content

These items give the prices for the different types and sizes of carpet and rugs, etc. There are also notes on 'Alterations, &c.' and how to price irregular or special shaped carpets. The vast majority carry the contact details of the factories and warehouses, and appear to be designed for the trade or dealers, etc. A number are annotated. Seven duplicates were removed to the handling collection, while a small number of duplicates were retained as they contain additional contextual or evidential information. There is also a handwritten document dated 1975, which is titled 'Price Lists: List of Originals 1879 to...'. This is very close to being a complete run and therefore presents an interesting perspective on the company.
