So we were clearing the master bedroom in preparation for painting and general decorating and pulling back the carpet we were presented with this scene. Probably original hand-painted victorian. Quite a few cracks and some hidden under the skirting board that has covered up the fireplace - but still rather striking. The problem now is what to do with them. Do we try and cut the new carpet around them - or do we just put them back under to whence then came?
