An embossed tile with a repeating floral design in the all over arts & crafts movement style, a durable buff clay tile glazed with a rich mahogany glaze. Mahogany glaze was popular for fireplace tiles due to it refelcting the red/orange/yellow glow of the burning fire better than any other colour.

Leonard Atkinson Shuffrey had offices at 38 Welbeck St, Cavendish Sq, London, an architect working in the era of the arts & crafts movement he worked with designs by many of the famous names. Austwick comments that L A Shuffrey designed lustre tiles for Edwards 'in imitation of William de Morgan's work'. Just two tile designs were registered by Shuffrey this was likely made by Maw who made many tiles for Edwards. He authored a book entitled The English Fireplace, published in 1912.
