St George & the Dragon
This design is based on the decorative motif found in Southwark Cathedral. Unveiled and dedicated in 1922, it is associated with the parish war memorial designed by Sir Ninian Comper, one of the last great Gothic revival architects. This motif is found throughout Europe in paintings, tiles and sculpture and is a symbol of good overcoming evil. The earliest known references of St. George date back to the 6th century, but the first known 'iconographical' depiction is found in Georgia during the 12th century.

Imperfect Tiles (3 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 £6 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.
