Noah’s Ark Tiles

In stock

Details:

This is a chance to adopt the delightful set of four Noah’s Ark hand-painted tile panels depicting a fox, tiger, rhino and owl. Made in 1935 by Carter & Co. from Poole, Dorset these tiles were rescued by Ironbridge Gorge Museum staff in the mid-1980s from the King Edward VII hospital before it was demolished. Tile panels like these were a common feature in many children’s wards in hospitals across the country but very few now remain as hospitals have been demolished and replaced with more modern buildings. Tiles revolutionised hygiene in hospitals and the cheery characters painted carefully on each tile cheered up both patients and staff.


What you receive:
- Certificate of adoption with a picture of your object
- A sheet of information about your object
- A text credit on the website plus an opportunity to say why you have adopted the object and what it means to you
