  • Note

    Four tiles of this pattern, described as Mongolian, are reproduced in Jon Catleugh, William De Morgan Tiles, London: Trefoil Books, 1983, p.100, pl. XIIa.  The tiles reproduced by Catleugh had the Merton Abbey mark, which we have not established on the present set as the marks are hidden behind the frame’s backboard.
