Rare Delft Tiles Discovered

Posted on: September 7th, 2015 by From the Workshop

 

Over 250 rare delft tiles were discovered during the demolition of a house in Bourmemouth. The remarkably well-preserved collection of hand-painted tiles includes some decorated with biblical scenes, animals and colourful birds. The collection is estimated to be worth up to £50,000. Re-creating traditional tiles like these is what we do everyday in our workshop!
