Wedgwood Months of the Year Tiles

Wedgwood Months of the Year TilesMonths of the Year 6-inch square tiles by the Josiah Wedgwood pottery, Etruria, Staffordshire, printed in blue. This series with each tile depicting a month of the year was designed by Helen Miles, a designer, painter and illustrator who designed several series of tiles for Wedgwood in the 1870s. A document in the Wedgwood archives records that the series of months was registered in March 1878. An 8-inch square version of the tiles was produced with the addition of a one-inch-wide outer border, often the Aesthetic style "Bell Flower" border design. The series was also produced on dinnerware. Most of the 12 months are recorded in the TCC Database including 8-inch tile and dinnerware examples.
