Scope and Content

Notebook page onto which are pasted four images of samples of carpets, with captions. The images are colour prints on paper, top left; cream with green lattice design and floral border, top right; cream with green leaf border and floral lattice design, bottom left; Persian style geometrics in blues and browns with a fringe, bottom right; Persian style geometric design in reds and greens against cream, with stylised tree and foliage motifs, and a fringe. Probably cut out of a publication.

Physical Characteristics and/or Technical Requirements

Poor condition. Page yellowing at edges, quite bad foxing, especially in the top quarter, affecting the top two images slightly. The page has warped where the images are glued on, and the top of the page may have been damp at some point causing it to warp. The top two images may have faded / yellowed slightly, but the bottom two have kept their colour. Condition stable. Production method: mechanically printed on paper, cut out by hand, pasted onto page.
