This antique Heriz carpet was bought at auction in The Netherlands over 20 years ago and it has remained rolled up in storage ever since. Last month during a review of stored items it was finally unrolled to allow it to be cleaned during a few hot sunny days. Here it is laid out on a tarpaulin in the garden of Tony’s Shropshire (UK) home.
