One of London Underground’s most distinguishing features is its tiling designs, particularly those on the early 1906-7 lines. Decorative patterns helped passengers identify their destination. Many designs are now hidden in closed stations like Aldwych (once called Strand) and Down Street, where Winston Churchill took refuge during the Second World War. Charing Cross and Euston also feature historic tiling designs. These designs have been applied to a beautiful range of homeware. In 1903, an architect called Leslie Green set out to decorate the stations of the central area of London's tube network with a unique series of ceramic tile designs. The scale of the project was huge and Green's tiles could be seen and admired above and below ground. Sadly, much of this mammoth work of art has been eroded and lost over the years. We have managed to restore and capture the full effect of these geometric tile designs in this stunning mug. For anyone who enjoys Edwardian design, or simply likes looking at beautifully deigned products, this is an absolute delight!
