St. George, Jesmond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne: sanctuary, south-east angle 
Tile-frieze of the sanctuary, south-east angle. Painted and over-glaze lustre on 4 1/4 inch blanks, probably supplied by Messrs CRAVEN DUNHILL. Designed by the architect of the church, THOMAS RALPH SPENCE (1845-1918); executed by the decorative and graphic artist GEORGE WOOLISCROFT RHEAD (1855-1920) - Rhead was paid (£-s-d) 60-10-0 for this work between February and April 1888.
Later in 1891, the rouge marble revetment of the lower dado (to match the sanctuary floor) was stripped off as ‘inharmonious’, and replaced by a glass mosaic, also designed (and possible executed in part) by SPENCE.
