The tiles in this table are another example of Spanish-influenced designs produced by Taylor Tilery (1930 - 1941). The festive geometric design is quite complex and uses a number of vivid glossy glazes in usual Taylor colors - black, orange, yellow, green, and beige.
This design is shown on page 161 of the California Tile, The Golden Era 1910-1940 (vol. 2). Another example with different glaze colors appears on page 265 of the Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles, Region 6. I could not find this design in Taylor catalog.
The tiles are in good condition with some surface wear and a couple tight surface hairlines. They are set in a simple wooden table with turned legs.
