Some of our favourite items at the moment are these vintage Kenneth Townsend designed tiles we’ve started collecting recently. We did a blog post a couple of months ago about his ‘Menagerie’ series of animal tiles http://hisforhomeblog.com/ceramics/on-the-tiles/
Much as we love his animals, we prefer the ‘London’ series that he produced http://www.kenneth-townsend.co.uk/pages/t-london.html The way he illustrated these quintessentially British subjects, with such a sense of fun and humour, makes them immediately identifiable as his.
We picked these 3 up on eBay, all separately, over a period of several months – we’ve lost count of the number of times we were outbid before we managed to bag these – they’re always hugely popular!
We’re still on the look out for the Lifeguard and the Grenadier Guards – we’re keeping our eyes peeled!
