According to J. & B. Austwick, Copeland & Garrett only produced encaustic floor tiles for a few years following 1837; this tile can therefore be dated to around 1837-1840, see J. & B. Austwick, 'The Decorated Tile: An Illustrated History of English Tile-Making and Design', London, Pitman House, 1980, pp. 56-59.
