little is known about these very attractive art décor ceramic
tiles, now on display in the garden of THE FFWRWM, Caerleon.
were purchased by Doctor Russell Rees from a bric-a-brac shop in Splott,
Cardiff. The vendor believed they originated from The PostHouse Hotel
and that they were an important feature of the 'Arthurian Rooms'.
The décor of the hotel was, it is thought, designed by Olga
Politzi, sister of Sir Rocco Forte. She, Doctor Rees believes, commissioned
an artist to produce the tiles.
our enquiries at the hotel, now The Holiday Inn, have drawn a blank.
None of the staff remember the Arthurian Rooms. If you can provide
any information which may throw some light on the tiles origins or
designer please email us.
