By the 14th century, a tilery in Coventry was supplying religious houses and churches in Leicestershire, including Ulverscroft Priory, where this one is from. This example carries the Arms of the Warren family. Henry VIII brought the era of medieval religious houses to an end between 1536 and 1539, with the 'Dissolution of the Monasteries'.

Afganistan C12th/13th This tile belongs to a unique group of monochrome glazed, molded relief tiles excavated from a palace at Ghazni, in modern Afghanistan. The decoration on this group consists of animals in heraldic poses (as seen here), as well as vegetal scrolls and calligraphy, often surrounded by beaded borders. The excavation stratigraphy dates them to the early thirteenth century, the period of the city’s Ghurid rule. They were probably manufactured in Ghazni especially for the palace.

Afganistan C12th C13th Square Tile Met Museum -A series found in Ghazni, the capital of the Ghaznavid dynasty (977–1186), in a house destroyed during the Mongol invasion of 1221. Most of the tiles in the series are square, some are polygonal, and are molded in relief with animals, plants, or occasionally inscriptions. Their decoration shows affinities with classical pre-Islamic motifs from Iran, such as the "pearl" borders and the animals in profile within a frame.
