Great Fire of London delft tiles (cont.)

Great Fire of London delft tiles (cont.)

Here are final 11 (of the 48) limited edition delft tiles designs that I produced for the Artists of Spitalfields Life exhibtion at Ben Pentreath Ltd, Rugby-street, London. Those unsold have now relocated to the Town House gallery on Fournier-street, Spitalfields until the end of December. Hurry and catch a bargain!

The tiles are inspired by the Great Fire of London 1666 - food, fire, pestulence, carnality and the Merrie Monarch!


Oysters, from Colchester, Wallfleet or Whitstable. Food of the common man.

Pie Corner II. Named for the Magpie pub that once stood there.

Poultry. A Norfolk Black turkey (Meleagris Gallopavo)

A Ewer of Water (London's burning)

Pudding Lane II

Arms of the Salters' Company.

Stew Lane. The 'stews' were actually bath-houses of ill-repute beside the Thames.

Sugar Loaves.

Three Crowns, representing Scotland, England and France (Charles II claimed all three!)

Vine Street

Wine Office Court
