The second last row depicts a number of biblical stories — Jacob wrestling with the angel, Noah’s ark, Samson bringing down the temple, and a mystery man carrying a pair of doors which I have no clue about. Delft tiles are always worth checking out as the range of subjects is huge and intriguing.
Any idea if these have been here since manufacture or did the lovely Charlotte Say install them in the 19thC?

Ah, thank you Susan. Unfortunately I have no idea if they were installed by Charlotte Say or not. Next time, I’ll ask.
