Bowler plaque - Silk Design (A)

Bowler plaque - Silk Design (A) Bowler plaque - Silk Design (A)

Erection date: 1995

The plaque shows a detail from a design for the silk fabric produced in Spitalfields. We believe the design shows a pomegranate in the Jacobean style, popular in the 18th century. One very successful designer was Garthwaite, who lived and worked one street to the north.

This cast-iron roundel is one of 22 - see Bowler's page for more details.
