You're bidding on a cool, antique matching pair of art tiles - 5 7/8" square - back-marked as manufactured by W.B. Simpson & Sons of London. Simpson was founded in 1833 and continues in business to this day as a top-of-the-line London tiling contractor. The "456 West Strand" address within the mark dates these tiles to 1868 or prior. Nice, Arts & Crafts sort of geometric circular design in blue, with yellow accents and borders.
NOTE - these tiles have issues of condition - both have edge chipping, sub glaze soil, scratch and abrasion. One has slightly better/darker color, but more edge damage. Early examples, though, and rare-to-find in any condition. SOLD AS-IS AS-FOUND.
Please review photos carefully to make your own determination of overall condition and appeal, and don't hesitate to ask any questions prior to bidding - thanks for looking!
