Research on decorative tiles - a Sydney link through the Haniotis family

submitted by Megan Manwaring on 03.08.2017


Hello readers

 

I have come across the name Theodoros Haniotis on a tile-making patent lodged in Sydney in 1910.

 

The patent number and date where imprinted on the back of a tile that I was given from a recent excavation site near Breakfast Creek, Brisbane (Cooksley Street). 

 

Could anyone help me with my research on this tile and how the Haniotis family was connected to tile-making? It seems one of the family was an importer and this may also be a link.

 

The Australian patent application also mentions that Theodoros Haniotis was a Sydney fishmonger. I have included an image of the front page of the patent specification.

 

Many thanks in advance.
