This 1968 photograph depicts some decorative mosaic tiles featuring a floral pattern. These can be seen on the wall tiles of the altar in a temple. These tiles (often from Staffordshire kilns) were once commonly used in Peranakan-styled houses and were mass produced by dust pressing, in which powdered clay was pressed into a mould with great force. Title devised by Library staff.
