Tunbridge Ware became synonymous with the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells in the 19th century as wealthy tourists flocked to take the waters, promenade along The Walks, now known as The Pantiles, and enjoy the local sights.  The intricate tesserae designs became more and more elaborate and manufacturers such as Thomas Barton, Edmund Nye and Henry Hollamby applied them to every manner of usable and attractive objects.

This lovely domed top example has a period paper liner and original faux shark skin base
