Hans van Lemmen | Historical Tiles


Leeds is particularly rich in buildings with tiles and architectural ceramics dating from the middle ages to the present day. It was the home of the famous firm Burmantofts where high quality tiles were made as well as fine terracotta and faience for the decoration of buildings which were used widely on a local, national and international scale. However examples of the product of other noted firms like Minton, Maw, Doulton, Godwin, J.C. Edwards and E. Smith &  Co can also be found throughout Leeds. This makes Leeds such a good place to visit for anyone interested in tiles and architectural ceramics. Listed below are pictures of buildings with tiles, terracotta and faience which give a glimpse of what can be seen.
