For What It’s Worth

A couple who recently purchased a home in Newport brought in a ceramic tile from one of their fireplaces, inquiring about its age and value. They said that their home dated from the 1880’s, which would also date the tile that was made by Minton of England. Single tiles of this decor are worth about $75 with several worth about $100 each.
