Records of Stoddard International plc, Design Archive, Multi / Mixed Ground Floral

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

Medium sized carpet design sketches and patterns dating from around 1890-1990. Designs are described as 'Multi / Mixed Ground Floral' and generally feature largely figured floral motifs, while some also feature scrollwork. The majority of designs consist of two or more 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. Most designs have been given a design number and some are dated. Many designs in this drawer 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.

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