A set of six original Minton tiles dating from around 1875, designed by John Moyr Smith, who worked within the Arts & Crafts tradition. Moyr Smith was a leading designer at Minton Tiles, the renowned tile manufacturer of the period. These tiles depict scenes drafted by Moyr Smith inspired by Lord Tennyson's collection of poems retelling the legend of King Arthur entitled 'Idylls of the King', which captured the imaginations of the Victorians and remained a literature classic. This set of six tiles depicts events surrounding Excalibur, Etarre, Enid, Elaine, Geraint and Lynette. There is a set of these tiles kept in the British Museum's collection. We also have the original border trim tiles. The tiles are in very good antique condition and can be arranged in a number of ways to create a splashback or a decorative feature.
