Charles Dickens Birthplace



Charles Dickens Birthplace

£28.00


Charles Dickens was born at 1 Mile End Terrace, Portsmouth on 7th February 1812 – the first married home of his parents, John and Elizabeth Dickens.   Although his family moved to London when Charles was three, the author retained a lifelong bond with the city and Dickens’ father managed the Royal Navy pay office in the city between 1807 and 1815.

The Charles Dickens Birthplace measures 13cm (5”) tall and 6cm (2.25”) wide, and features a blue plaque at the front showing the year of his birth, and to the rear, a silhouette of Oliver Twist, holding out his bowl for more.  This is the very first ceramic we have produced that shows basement windows!

Please note: This ceramic is one of our Freestanding Collection, and is not designed to be wall hung alongside our Nation of Shopkeepers ceramics
