Title:North Devon Relief-Decorated Ceramics in the Household
Originator:Cramp, C.
Summary:Relief-decorated earthenware tiles and hearth furniture formed a distinctive feature of the material culture of north Devon in the 17th and early 18th centuries; this paper reviews advances in their study. Recent finds show that, rather than being used largely in churches, the tiles were also in widespread domestic use. The paper assembles the new finds and discusses their distribution, the social status of the occupants and the way in which these ceramics were used in the household. The tiles were probably used in houses principally to line the jambs, reveals and backs of fireplaces, especially in first-floor chambers.
