Presenting an excerpt from the introduction by Thomas Oldham from Antient Irish Pavement Tiles (1842) which tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“In the second or Encaustic variety, the surface is quite smooth and flat, the pattern being produced by a differently coloured substance inlaid. The prevailing colours in the Irish examples are bright red and yellow, or purplish black and light pearl grey; but they occasionally occur of the same blackish colour, and deep red. The specimens represented form nearly a complete series of those now existing in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin.”

Hereby presenting an excerpt from an article from the May issue of Keramic Studio: A Monthly Magazine for the Potter and Decorator (1918) by designer Henrietta Barclay Paist. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page, which is one of her bowl designs.
