These are quirky little items - which date to the late 1960s or early 1970s.

They are a set of tile covers - these are very slim aluminium tiles which you would stick onto or over tiles in your kitchen. Great if you live in rented accomodation and there are some dreadful random "granny" tiles in your kitchen area.

Simple and temporary solution - to cover with these more modern space age ones! - also hand items for crafts projects etc.

There is an instruction leaflet which says that you would attach these to the tile on the wall with bits of doubld sided sticky tabs.

There are a total of 16 tiles in each sealed pack - so they are all guaranteed to have been unused and in pristine condition.

I have an opened packet here which I have used to photograph for you here - if there are any marks on these - dont worry they wont be on the sealed items.

They seem to have been made in Newcastle on Tyne - and are called Tyne Plaqs (the company is now dissolved, so rare survivors).

Each tile cover is about 4 1/4 inches square (11 cm).

To give you an idea of coverage - a note on the instructions says that it would take 72 of these tiles to cover a square yard.

Strange items - and lovely the funky space age design.

These items are very rare - especially in this more modernist design.

The price quoted here is for ONE sealed pack only, but I have five packs available (plus a randomn opened packet).

Please ask about postage discounts if you like more than one packet.
