Seller: classicfantasyartworks (3.008) 100%, Location: Ocala, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 143374492612 Mintons, Ltd - China Works - Circa 1885 "Cardinal Beaton's Home - Edinburgh" An excellent scenic tile, one of a series of twelve tiles engraved by L. T. Swetnam, a Minton engraver, featuring popular English historic spots and tourist destinations, created circa 1885. This is an etching of "Cardinal Beaton's Home, Edinburgh," which stood on the North side of the Cowgate, between Blackfriars' Wynd and Todrick's Wynd. This house was originally built by James Beaton, Archbishop of Glasgow from 1509-1522. Thereafter, the house was used by the Bishop of St. Andrews until 1546. James V lodged here in 1528. The house no longer exists today and its place is marked by a nearby historical plaque. One will note the L. T. Swetnam's initials at the lower left of the tile. This series of scenic tiles has many fans, who find it not so easy to collect the full set. People collect this series, not to install, but to frame and display as antique works of art. These tiles were printed in various colors, and, depending upon the year they were made, will vary in print quality, and whether their locations are labeled on the tile. Please note a glaze flaw toward the lower central area of the tile. Please examine the high-resolution scans of this tile to determine its exact state.
