Delft tile panel. Panel or sign, of fine quality, made from 48 tin-glazed earthenware tiles decorated in a rich blue. The central decoration depicts a cock and bottle which is surrounded by a foliate frame of 24 narrow tiles. Bryant Lillywhite in 'London Signs' (1972), ascribes it to the Cock & Bottle Inn in Cannon Street, at the corner of Laurence Pountney Hill, adding 'a tiled sign shows a 17th-century or earlier type bottle beneath which stands a cock-bird with magnificent tail plumage'.
