Antique floor tiles

3 antique floor tiles. Clockwise from top left,  -  mid 19th century encaustic tile with Christian fish symbol from Burford Church, (England).  Small 19th century tile with flower design, and French art nouveau encaustic tile of c1900. Encaustic tiles are hard wearing and were very popular in the 19th century for hallways and passage ways, many beautiful examples were made by Minton.
