Laid out on a tarpaulin this rug is about to be washed. Bought at auction many years ago it has been rolled up awaiting washing and restoration. So a few sunny days forecast for Shropshire (UK) and so the opportunity to do a total immersion washing in a shallow bath fabricated from the tarpaulin support around the edges with wood poles – the shallow tank is shown in the following image.
