Aquacomb & Prykestar

A couple of notes on the new artwork.

Pryke and Palmer were based in Brooks Wharf, 48 Upper Thames Street, London, from the 1860s until the early 20th Century.
Not much is known about the company at this stage, but they were involved in supplying all kinds of materials for the Victorian builder, from ceramic wall tiles to fireplaces, and even wallpaper.
The other, Aquacomb is a mystery, I have only seen two examples in the Brighton area. The design is very unusual in simplicty whilst being quite complex, if that makes sense.
These designs are available in a limited edition of 33 in each size.
The need for limited editions will enable the updating of the Streetware site, whilst keeping the portfolio of artworks on the site to a certain quantity.
All handmade Streetware art is printed on the finest grade canvas, stretched on our unique frames, then individually marked and numbered.
