Tunstall's Victorian Swimming Pool in Greengates Street, Tunstall
The Tunstall Arms on the Tunstall Pool Building
|The seal probably
came into being in 1866 when the Tunstall Burial Board was formed.
In the chevronel is the Stafford Knot and two scythes which are from the arms of the Sneyd family. The Scythe also appears in the Burslem arms.
The three vases represent the pottery industry and in the the upper left corner is a representation of two bottle kilns.
