Lea & Boulton, Tunstall, Staffordshire is a shadowy company about which little is known. They appear to have been founded in the mid 1890s and they also have traded as Lea Tiles. Up to 1900 they produced encaustic and transfer printed tiles but from 1900 onwards seem to have specialized in relief molded tiles in Art Nouveau style. The company went out of business in the 1930s.
