About this site
This site has been developed through a partnership between the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust and Shrewsbury Museums Service, and supported by the resource / DCMS (Designation Challenge Fund).
It is the first stage in, what is hoped, will become a National Database of historic tile designs. Initially the web site will concentrate on providing information about known decorative wall and floor tile manufacturers and designers, together with images and information about nineteenth and twentieth century tile designs from the United Kingdom.
The next stage will see further images and associated information being added from both Museum and private collections.
We would welcome feed-back on any aspect of the site to date and on how it might be taken forward in the future.
