Sale Information

Online auction with an auctioneer.

The Pattern Sale is a celebration of colour, fabric and the extraordinary wealth of design created over the span of a century, comprising two private collections, A Private Collection of Fabric Sample Books and The John Barker Archive.

The main body of The Pattern Sale is made up of over 170 fabric and textile sample books, which have been amassed over 30 years by the owner for historical reference and design inspiration and contain nearly 130,000 individual fabric samples. A fascinating snapshot of Manchester textile design in the mid-19th century comes in the form of the John Barker Archive, a well-documented collection of over 800 sketches and designs for fabric and wallpaper executed between 1860 and 1872 by John Barker of Salford.
