Provenance: William Waldorf Astor, 3rd Viscount Astor ( 1906 - 1966 ) Cliveden, Berkshire
Taken from a carpet which measured measured approx 7 x 5 metres with additional window bays added on to one side. It was originally supplied for the library extension of Newton Surmaville House near Yeovil, Somerset which was completed in 1870. Notably the carpet contains no less than four synthetic dyes a remarkable and surprising fact in such an early carpet. The suppliers to the Wilton carpet mill must have been very well informed keeping pace with technological developments of the day.
