A Familiar Face?

Just got back from a weekend stay in Esher where I took the chance to photograph these tiles in Esher High Street. They form a pilaster repeated along a row of shop fronts.

I don’t know the manufacturer but the style, glaze and the detail of the modelling seem to me very similar to the Carter’s tiles I have studied in Bournemouth and Poole.

While I was taking the photos the owner of one of the shops came out. He complained that his neighbouring shop had just painted over some of the tiles and he had to replace some which had worked loose on the edge.
