Name: Minton Tile Cadeuceus
Manufacturer: Minton China Works

Description: This tile was made by the Minton factory and is fully marked on the reverse MINTONS CHINA WORKS STOKE ON TRENT. I am not certain of the exact date but certainly an S was added to the name Minton in 1871.I think this probably dates from between 1890 and 19 20. It is standard size 6 inches (15cm ) square and is 0.5 ins (1.5cm) thick. There is a tiny chip on the top edge and a nibbled part along one edge( see close ups). The central symbol is a caduceus or Herald’s wand such as that carried by Hermes the messenger God. It is the symbol used by the medical profession.
