Fonthill Castle

The art, architecture and personal collecting interests of Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930) are represented in the holdings of Fonthill Castle. These include several thousand European and American prints, and decorative ceramic tiles from Europe, Asia, North Africa and the Middle East – as well as tile produced at Mercer’s own Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. Many of these tiles are inset into Fonthill’s walls and ceilings. The collections also encompass other works of art and handcraft, many acquired by Mercer in his travels, as well as household furnishings, decorative items and personal effects.
