Close up view of workshop West wall

From the top, an Italian majolica hand painted floor tile from the “18th/17th century or possibly earlier”. My research suggests that it depicts St Agnes who after a failed attempt at being burned at the stake (see yellow flame shapes) was stabbed in the neck. It cost more than my usual budget and had the impression of a hand on the back where it was pressed into the mould. In the goblet are two eyes which is indicative of St Lucy (a companion of St Agnes who is often depicted holding a plate on which are two eyes). Below, two 19th century Delft tiles of ships. At the bottom, a 4 tile Portuguese flower panel dating to the early 1900’s, typically used in churches and chapels. To the right, a “retro vintage Hereford tile”.
