A selection of medium sized design sketches and design patterns from the 20th century. Designs mainly feature floral and Persian patterns, all of which are in the format of boxes or panels. Some of the designs are in the format of colour photographs rather than being hand painted and most items feature design names and numbers. A few designs bear the letters GG which could refer to George Grant, Head of Design at A F Stoddard & Co Ltd from the 1980s onwards. One or two of the designs also 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.
