This is a design classic, or it should be, it isn't because it is very rare, a wonderful take on the triple tulip design genre. You could have thousands of art nouveau tiles in your collection and have never seen anything like this. Very high relief, embossed and impressed, impressed rather than embossed outline so avoiding the white 'cartoonish' effect, fabulous colours including blue background and burnt orange flowers. There are high relief multicolour embossed art nouveau tiles from Maw, some by Carter which were made by Maw, high relief and impressed art nouveau from Malkin but only monochrome, high relief and multicolour but not art nouveau from Gibbons Hinton. All of those are rare in great part due to technical difficulties so it's unsurprising that this is very rare.

Simpsons is an interesting and somewhat mysterious company, the scale of their production is unknown. There are no design or engineering characteristics which identify the wares, they made many different types of tiles and seemingly not very many of them. They made some technically excellent tiles but also 'cheap and cheerful' tiles. They made a copy of a Mintons which is just as good as the original, perhaps better, they appear side by side in a book whose author didn't pay much attention to what he was doing. This is the only such high relief tile seen by them, interestingly they also produced the same design as a transfer print. Versos very clean, unmarked save for painted pattern number
