Matthew Boulton's Soho House in Birmingham has an early linoleum
floor, which I remember seeing and discussing with other
conservators a few years ago. It may be useful for you to talk to
them.

I have worked on a very large World War II painting made to raise
funds for the war painted on linoleum which was in a dreadful state,
both the paint layer and the support.  It belongs to Ipswich Museum
and the report must be available there, if not and if you are
interested I could try to find my own copy.
