Just double checking if this is a Wallwork tile on a Pilkington blank.

There seems to be some doubt now, unless they are marked.

Those may be Jersey; I think the doubt with those is because there is a backing fixed to the tiles so it's not possible to know if they are Johnson or Pilkington blanks, and the sizes don't look right.

I think we're saying that if the decoration is similar to other Wallwork tiles, and it's on a Pilkington blank, then odds are it's a Wallwork. Whereas if it was a sparkly pink unicorn on a Pilkington blank then you'd either think Wallwork and his team had been on the whacky Baccy or it wasn't a Wallwork.

Left Richards tile.
Centre Johnsons tiles.
Right Pilks tiles.

All or none may be Wallwork!

According to AW website he bought blanks from Pilkingtons and Johnson Bros between 1957 and 1984. Tiles produced by AW at Forest Hill and then by assistants at Greenwich and Marnhull studios.

I don't imagine he decorated any of the ones sold commercially. I did have a few that he was experimenting with that Joe now has.

I don't have a problem with the tile here being a Wallwork one. When he went to France he left all of what he had left with me to sell on his behalf and this is undoubtedly one of the patterns included.
