Later in the week we took a trip up to the Newark Antiques Fair. On the way, we stopped at Audley End House and then we stayed in Cambridge before continuing on to Newark. My main purchase from the antiques fair was a very heavy cement lion for the back garden. Mom bought a promotional-sized British red phone booth. Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures of either the lion or the phone booth. Both were unique finds.

The tiles are called "lustre" tiles because of their iridescent effect
