Welcome, Nick.

I am not sure that the expertise of Forum members covers tiles but it was clearly made to be framed and this oak frame looks to have been with the tile since it was made at the end of the 19th or in the early part of the 20th century. Nothing to suggest to me that it wasn't made in the Potteries.

Does a plain oak frame like this suggest Utility style? i.e. late 30s to 40s?

Thank you for the replys.

I been doing some more reseach in to the tile,and with the help of Whittons auctioneers and their ceramics expert. it looks like it was made by Burmantofts Faience in Leeds, and may have been done by Harold Leach. Which could put the tile around the early 1900's.

Certainly Burmantofts used that distinctive colour.
The "feet" at the corners suggest it was a teapot stand that's been framed up.
