CFA Voysey demon tile - orange


Code: 10478

An orangey-brown glazed 6 tile/teapot stand designed by CFA Voysey of a demon portrait (in reality a caricature self portrait) and manufactured by JC Edwards of Ruabon c1900. 
Voysey utilised this demon/devil caricature also as bookends, stone carved architectural pieces and his Demon wallpaper. 
Also compare with the standard lamp we have with similar devilish piercings.
  For reference see: Fired Earth 1000 Years of Tiles in Europe published by Richard Dennis, page 129.
An example exist in the Ironbridge Gorge Museum collection.
