A very rare set of tiles I have nevwr seen the like with a nice chocolate brown floral print on a light buff clay body. Five inch tiles, presumably purpose made for a particular model of fireplace or stove, purpose made biscuit but with a pattern that was made for six inch tiles the half inch border can be seen on the edges. Five inch tiles are seen from time to time mostly in delft style as it was the standard size for such and made as reproductions, usually handpainted on a thinner clay body. English made tiles are known by earlier makers Minton Hollins, Maw and Copeland and several arts & crafts dealers imported dutch tiles.

This design on six inch tiles also seen by Brown-Westhead, Moore & Co and Steele & Wood the latter quite possibly making the tiles for the former who were tableware specialists.

Versos very clean, unmarked generic rails.
