identifying vintage tile pattern/maker

Does anyone have ideas on good resources to identify the pattern name and manufacturer of my vintage bathroom tiles? A previous owner pulled out some tiles from the tub surround to put up a shower surround. We found a bushel basket of the subway tiles in the basement, but no leftover decorated tiles. We want to eventually redo the bathroom and restore the surround with a proper tile surround. The bathroom has a stained and leaded glass window that was made to match the waterlily tiles.

This is a real website with very helpful information;


They have lots of sources on vintage bathrooms.

Try tile shops that carry old tiles. clearance tiles, etc.
It will be a long and hard search, but I know that such shops do exist in your area. Whenever I need an out of date tile, I always find what I need in one of those shops.

Thanks for the input. Will put those resources in my research list.
