Title: 1965T5417 Tunbridgeware Picture - Battle Abbey
Description: 1965T5417
Tunbridgeware Picture - Battle Abbey, 1800-50
Mosaic panel of Battle Abbey made in the Fenner and Nye workshop, possibly as early as 1820. This is a highly skilled piece which uses different shades of wood mosaic to achieve an almost "watercolour" appearance. The maker is able to show the abbey in perspective by increasing the size of the wood blocks from left to right.

Purchased from Edward H Pinto, 1965.
