When I first saw this I wondered if it may be by Wedgwood as they produced some similar designs. A nice design, competantly engraved and printed, it repeats both vertically and horizontally which strikes me as rather curious, to my mind one looks good, a wall would look a bit odd. English manufacturers did not produce such repeating designs that I can think of but I have seen some at least similar from continental companies.

Verso perfectly clean, a little clay loss from removal from its installation. Rails, embossed R in a lozenge shape like the pre 1884 british registration mark and printed number D54. Wedgwood used D prefix pattern numbers but only for block printed tiles.
