Description

Maker: Sherwin & Cotton

Item: Photographic portrait tile of General William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army.

Details: Probably modelled by George Cartlidge. Beautifully done, the portrait appears to have a three-dimensional quality. Stamped into the back is: 'Portrait of General Booth 1904 Made by Sherwin & Cotton Eastwood Works Hanley Staffs'. There was a paper label for the London & Staffordshire Decorated Tile Co. stuck over the lower part of this stamp - this is now loose but still present. The tile is framed in a vintage oak frame - we are not sure whether this is original.
