The Tring tiles
- Art Funded
- 32.5 x 16.2 x 3.5 cm
Judging from their remarkable state of preservation and elaborate design these tiles were most certainly intended to decorate a wall rather than a pavement. This tile work is a remarkable and rare example of the graffiato method where the surface of the tile is first covered in white slip, then incised with a design after which the latter was scraped away from the entire background.
Rector of Bradwell-juxta-Mere, Essex. It may have come from the church.
