3 folders, all untitled but which have been given the names 'Small Medallion and Other Sketches'; 'Small Preliminary Sketches' and 'Small Tracings, Sketches and Miscellaneous', and 20 loose items which have been grouped together and catalogued as if they were in their own distinct folder titled 'Large Loose Vase Floral'. A few of the designs 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. Design sketches that carry a number written in red ink, or the letters B.L. or B.G. (meaning 'bought in London' or 'bought in Glasgow') followed by a number, can potentially be cross referenced with STOD/201/1/8/1 'Templeton Register of Designs Brought - Sketches 1897-1915 (1925)'. Numbers written in red ink have been taken to be the Design Number and are catalogued as the Design Title. Some of the designs in this drawer feature letters and numbers in the form 'SK/C 234', or similar, accompanied by a coloured sticky dot, which perhaps refers to a more recently added indexing system.
This description is part of the Design Archive which is divided into the 142 sections, each with its own separate description.
