Wilton carpet, of North West Persian design, circa 1865, supplied by John G Crace, the red field with overall herati variant design, a medium blue angular meandering vine border. This carpet was commisioned for the library at Tyntesfield and supplied by one of the most important decorators of the nineteenth century, J G Crace, and was almost certainly made by Blackmore of Wilton. The carpet has been cut to fit the library fireplace.
Purchased from the estate of the late Lord Wraxall with the assistance of the NHMF and donations from members and supporters.
