Tunbridge Ware Information Day

Time From 10.30am
Date 04/11/2017 to 04/11/2017
Address The Edenbridge Galleries, Edenbridge Kent TN8 5BD
Cost No charge

We are pleased to announce that a Tunbridge Ware information day will be held at The Edenbridge Galleries with morning and afternoon sessions covering two different topics.

 

11.00am Dianne Brick will consider the work of William Fenner, with special emphasis on a rare fitted dressing case bearing a label from the 1830’s and which can be dated with some accuracy due to silver hallmarks on the fittings.

 

1.45pm Dianne will fast-forward almost one hundred years, when she will discuss Tunbridge Ware from the period 1916-1927, particularly concentrating on John Thomas Ellis and Porter’s Repository of Tunbridge Ware. This will include unpublished information kindly supplied by Ellis’ great grandson. 

In this session Dianne will also touch on the work of the Tunbridge Wells Manufacturing Company, the town’s last Tunbridge Ware Manufacturer. She will discuss a most unusual Tunbridge Ware picture frame, which appears to have been influenced by the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922.
