Recreated from an original tile from the fire boxes of Drayton Hall, this pattern is unusual in its repeating motif, known as Bloemruitjes (flower and diamond). This tile pattern is a rare archaeological find and may be the only example of this decorative motif found in North America. The fire boxes were once tiled completely in hand-painted delft tiles such as this. An elegant reminder of a visit to Drayton Hall.
Drayton Hall's main house and landscape are open to the public weekly Wednesday through Monday from 9 am to 5:00 pm (gate closes at 3:30 pm). CLOSED on Tuesdays. The gate will accept no cash transactions.
