Probably of persian or dutch origin for there were several makers of tiles for the english market such noted names as William Morris, the Marks Brothers, Thomas Elsley imported dutch tiles. This is a thicker body similar to de Morgan rather than most of the Morris and Elsley types, London retailer Martin van Straaten of 28 - 30 Little Britain, imported some similar tiles some of them made by Tighelaar of Makkum in Holland.
