Angel of Hope
Personalisation: Please click here to personalise this design
The angel looks upwards in hope. This image is based on the highly decorative ceramic tiles that can be seen surrounding the doorway of the Watts Chapel in Compton village near Guildford in Surrey. Mary, the wife of the painter G.F. Watts, designed and built the chapel between 1898 and 1904 with help from many local people. The building is a unique mix of art nouveau, Celtic, Romanesque and Egyptian styles. The exterior of the chapel is covered with decorative brickwork. This, together with the richly ornate gesso interior, reflects Mary’s wish for a symbolic fusion of the universal laws of justice, charity and love. It is also available from www.wattsgallery.org.uk

Dimensions: 8.8cm x 10.7cm
Imperfect Tiles (2 available)
Imperfect tiles are slightly below the high standards of our perfect tiles. These tiles are a great
way to add to your collection and saves £5 per tile against the price of perfect tiles.
An imperfect tile will have a small defect of some kind, such as a crack or surface blemish.
A crack will not be easy to spot from the front but is likely to be more obvious from the back.
You are welcome to contact us before purchasing an imperfect tile to ask about the defects.
