ENCAUSTIC TILES

Encaustic floor tiles are amongst the most hard-wearing, functional but at the same time most beautiful tiles. In the 19th century they were made in large numbers for churches, public buildings, and private houses and show an enormous range of different patterns and figurative designs. Minton & Co., Maw & Co., Godwin, Campbell Tiles, and Craven Dunnill were amongst the foremost manufacturers who made this kind of tile.
