Full Description

This volume presents the proceedings of the symposium of the same name held in September 1995 to celebrate the centenary of the National Trust. The papers deal with many specific case-histories in all areas of the conservation of historic textiles including upholstery, embroidery, costumes, curtains, carpets and tapestry. They reveal the ingenuity, skill and care of the conservators who undertake work for the National Trust to preserve the contents of historic country houses.
