The Designing Pattern resource box contains a selection of drawings which range in date from the 1830s to the 1940s. They show the interior and exterior decoration of Classical and Egyptian Revival buildings, Indian monuments and plans for modern buildings. The box also includes pattern designs made by Owen Jones for his publication The Grammar of Ornament (1856). Jones sourced these patterns from diverse non-western and western cultures and developed his designs during a period of travel in the 1850s.
