One of a series of landscapes featuring historic buildings, the engravings widely attributed to William Wise but perhaps Swetnam is more likely. A most charming scene of Anne Hathaway's Cottage, a picturesque farmhouse in the village of Shottery a mile from Stratford upon Avon which was the pre-marital home of William Shakespeare's wife.

Mintons made various series of landscapes, this appears to be from a series of tourist destinations, there are several Edinburgh scenes, some from Warwickshire, the Derbyshire Peak District and various other sites from around the country. The majority of these designs are found on teapot stands rather than tiles and they were presambly sold as souvenirs. Other series often appearing on teapot stands are the ruined abbey and cathedral series although again they may not be 'a series' as such as being made for their market in souvenir shops.
