The registration number means that the design was registered in 1894.

I am not aware of an online record of the registration marks/numbers and the designers from this period but you could have a search, as I haven't looked for a while. One possible designer could be Lewis F. Day, who would have been freelance in 1894 but he did design tiles for Pilkington then before being put under contract by them in 1899.

The painted N could be the decorator's mark put there for quality control purposes.

The lack of a border at the top and bottom means it's a "Freize" tile, one of a set
that could be joined together, to make a continuous decorative border.
Often seen in fireplace surrounds, or wash-stands.
