    Runner fragment made up from a piece of a Wilton carpet • made in 1869 • 426 x 70cm

    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.
