Antique Carpet being washed on a sunny summer’s day in Shropshire (UK)



This shows Anthony J Sargeant washing an antique Heriz carpet on a hot sunny day in the garden of his Shropshire home. The carpet was bought at auction in The Netherlands more than 20 years ago but has remained rolled up in storage ever since. Last month in a move to sort out and rationalize the storage the carpet was finally unrolled and given a wash when a few days of hot and sunny weather was forecast.
