Moulded Portrait Tiles - J & W Wade & Co

6 inch moulded and highly glazed tile portraits c.1890.

Many of these designs originated with American tile companies

Isaac Broome’s “Michelangelo” tile design was copied by at least ten British tile companies and one California company, with or without his permission, and it was also used by the Providential Tile Works. see Michael Padwee's Isaac Broome- Innovation and Design in the Tile Industry after the Centennial Exhibition
