ANTWERP MAIOLICA TILES AT FIRLE PLACE
By Michael Archer / Timothy Wilson (As published in Keramos, Vol. 210, October 2010)
Now set into a fireplace at Firle Place are thirteen painted tiles, evidently the remains of one or more large-scale tile pictures. These twenty-two tiles in total, one of which is dated 1546, are survivals from an ambitious commission; they are described here for the first time in affectionate tribute to our friend, mentor, and colleague John Mallet, to whom both authors have too many debts for enumeration here.
