This was the design and first major work of Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, a young discovery of Meltser's who was be engaged on the decoration of many of his projects. The tiles were executed and installed by specialists from the London branch of the Doulton (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Doulton ) pottery company. Petrov-Vodkin supervising the early stages of manufacture in Lamberth (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambeth )." (page 155)
