Here for sale is an original Minton China Works tile. In 1845, Herbert Minton took Michael Daintry Hollins into partnership, and the tile-making side of the business became known as Minton Hollins & Co. Herbert Minton's successful experiments in making encaustic tiles during the 1840s had set him at the forefront of a huge industry supplying the needs of institutions, churches, and domestic interiors all over the world. 

This example dates from the 1890s and has a wonderful classic design which is typical of the Aesthetic movement.
