Moulded Ceiling Section
This picture is of a section of the moulded ceiling that can be found in Grove House, High Street Chatteris. The ceiling is made up of a series of square plaster of Paris ’tiles’ that join together with a square tile placed over the corner join where the four tiles meet.
The manufacturer of this particular ceiling is unknown but a company that still makes very similar moulded ceilings today (2015) is called Lincrusta.
A very similar pattern to this ceiling has also been seen on the under stairs of a large house on London road Chatteris, suggesting their might have been a supplier selling these ’tiles’ to wealthy houses at some point in history.
Grove House is a Grade ii, listed building and contains a number of historical features. This is the only decorative ceiling in the house and is situated in the main room on the ground floor and at the front of the house. This room also contains a number of other grand features. Given it’s grandeur it would most likely have been the main room for entertaining guests in the house.
