Victorian Fireplace tiles tell of scenic British Isles............April, 13

April, 2013 - A rare sight Victorian Pictorial Tile

It is still possilbe to enjoy virtually the same views of these water falls today - compare the view of the falls in the picture and then check out the tiles - simply amazing and artistic unique work.

These are genuine hand painted tiles, over 100 years old in our estimation and feature two well know scenic locations.  One is Devil's Glen in County Wicklow, Ireland and the other is of Inversnaid Fall in Stirlingshire, Scotland.

Devil's Glen

 

    

Inversnaid Fell

And a poem to match

‘ This darksome burn, horseback brown, His roll rock highroad roaring down, In coop and in comb the fleece of his foam Flutes and low to the lake falls home. A wind puff-bonnet of fawn-froth turns and twindles over the broth of a pool so pitch black, fell-frowning. It rounds and rounds despair to drowning. Degged with dew, dappled with dew Are the groins of the braes that the brook treads through, Wiry heath packs, flitches of fern, And the bead bonny ash that sits over the burn. What would the world be, once bereft Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left, O let them be left, wildness and wet; Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet’.
