Maw Tiles

1880? Two tiles, GGE and MSA, done by Maw & Co. $75 each through Ebay from Howard Zar, Oct., '99. "The Doctors and the Dying Man" for $45 from UtterClutter1973 on Etsy, Dec., '20. 

These tiles are done in a brown-and-white format. I have not yet succeeded in identifying the artist but the images seem so familiar! Each tile is signed "COM." So far I have three tiles in a series reported to include twelve tiles. The miller in MSA is so serious! For me the greatest interest in GGE lies in the surprise on the woman's face as she looks on."The Doctors" is a rather unusual fable to illustrate but absolutely true to experience, not just in medicine!
