Records of Stoddard International plc, Design Archive, Rugs and Squares Persian / Floral

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

Medium and large carpet design sketches and design patterns dating from the 1900s to the 1980s, which can broadly be described as Persian floral in style. Most patterns consist of several seperate pieces of paper (one has 23 seperate parts), 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. The majority have been given a design number, some are dated, while a few also note contract details.

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