Nine Packard & Orde Tiles

hover over image to zoom

Nine hand painted tiles, all initialled 'OR', for Rosalind Ord, some stamped to the reverse 'Packard & Ord. Hand Painted Tiles'.  

These tiles date from the early 1930s when two schoolteachers, Sylvia Packard and Rosalind Ord, found that their mutual interest in painting ceramic tiles could earn them a living. In 1936 the Packard and Ord partnership began production in Barnfield, Marlborough, specialising in commissions and giftware. Before P&O was established at Marlborough and had their own kiln, Packard & Ord's tiles were often fired at Poole.

Queen Mary and Fortnum and Mason were regular customers, and examples are to be found in the V&A, private collections and, of course, on walls across the world. 

£225.00 for the nine or £35.00 each.
