Records of Stoddard International plc, Design Archive, Mixed Floral

Scope and Content

'Floral' refers to patterns and design elements of, or pertaining to, flowers. Although this drawer of designs had been titled 'Mixed Floral', the drawer also contained some miscellaneous designs, perhaps due to being incorrectly filed, or otherwise. The drawer contained designs by, amongst others, Forrer, Malpiece, Libert, Studio Rosal, Gros Renaud, Alcide Legrand and David Wolverson. Companies named included Templeton & Co. Ltd, Grays of Ayr and B.M.K. Ltd. Most of the designs in this drawer feature letters and numbers in the form 'SK/E/B 787', or similar, accompanied by a coloured sticky dot, which perhaps refers to a more recently added indexing system. Those designs 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)'.

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