- Curator's comments
- These tiles were almost certainly designed by A. W. N. Pugin. The simplicity and clarity of each element within the design is characteristic of Pugin's flat patterns.
For a similar pierced quatrefoil enclosing a fleur-de-lys, see Stoke 1984, no.13, January 1863, in buff and red.
