Axminster carpet runner, orginally laid between the Dining Room and Library

Museum number: XF305

Curatorial note

Made for Soane for the Library-Dining Room, ground floor, 13 Lincoln's Inn Fields.

This small piece lay between the larger carpets, aligned east-west. It remained in situ until 2005 when it was replaced with a replica manfactured by David Bamford and sponsored by Deborah Loeb Brice.

The image is cropped from a photograph showing the Library-Dining Room in 1991 with the runner in situ, partially covered by the green baize over the Axminster in the Dining Room.
