Date: 1885 (circa)
Price: £120 (approx. $160)
Classical border tiles in super colours and
of unusual dimensions. Useful for many
applications such as spacing 8x8 tiles or to
make a border around a 6x6 tile. They are 8" x
4" biscuit split in half, at the time these were
made even for 6" x 12" tiles the company took a
12" x 12" and split it, this was due to warping
problems when firing rectangular tiles.
From the same installation as this.
Versos clean but stained, embossed Minton
