This tube line design tile in an art deco
style is difficult to date for sure being
designed sometime around the second decade of
the 20thC for much of which there were more
pressing things on people's minds. There were
regular and geometric designs made right from
the early years of the art nouveau period around
1900, this art deco design could well be viewed
as art nouveau by some and maybe then it was
considered so. Evidence linking Wade's pattern
numbers and dates is very limited.
