Town/Village: Repton
Place Details:  
Artist and Date:  
Iconography: Fleur de lys, quatrefoil, rosette, rose, cross, knot
Copied from (Collection): BAJ VII p 385 pl XLI
Watercolour Ref. No.: D016
Notebook: FMP  
Portfolio: Jas P,  
Notebook: IH 2
Other details: Four tracings. Fig. 3 would form, when placed together, a simple but effective pattern, consisting of lozenges and octfoil flowers; tiles of a somewhat similar pattern occur at St Albans and other places, and produce an admirable effect when intermixed with more elaborate ornamentation. Figs 4 and 5 are single quarries of early in the 13th century and are admirable examples of the designs of that period. Besides these, some fragments of tiles of an early period, but of a different character were found at Repton, one of which here shown, is pecularly interesting; it is of a dark blue colour, the lines forming the pattern being simply indented into the surface and not filled in. Further examples from Bakewell.
